This is Miku, and this is her story: "The picture on the left captures a 17 year old girl with an eating disorder. At her lowest weight, she was 91 pounds. She would follow a strict exercise routine and would count her calories meticulously. She was insecure about herself and cared about what others thought of her. She thought she needed a boyfriend to survive (wait... What?). However, the picture on the right shows me at my current age, 21, and killing it in the weight room at TCU. I have learned that it is perfectly ok to be confident in my abilities, respect myself, and be unique. I accept that some people will not like me no matter what, and that's perfectly ok. I am currently 125 pounds and I have decided to join the US Marines. I believe that strong is the new beautiful.đź’–" #featurefriday
