Welcome! I am Kathia Cubas and I created this blog to talk about the many pressures in media that negatively effect women and especially college women. I chose this topic because I am obviously a college women myself and there are many women that suffer from eating disorders secretly and some become so engulfed by the disease that they have to seek heavy treatment. From personal experience I have known many people who have fallen susceptible to eating disorders and body dissatisfaction because they have secretly suffered from deep insecurities that they feel these are the only ways to get rid of those insecurities. This topic has always been an interesting topic to me and as a young women myself I feel this is a topic that many young women entering the college atmosphere should be educated about. I feel that since I have done so much research on this topic in the past weeks that I have educated myself on this topic tremendously and it should be discussed more often.
