Hi, I hope you are well. I wanted to get in touch as I recently became a Christian and wanted to share my story. I think this would really resonate with your audience. As background I developed anorexia when I was 13 years old, living with it for 5 years before ending up hospitalised for a year with the illness. I left hospital and began a long road to recovery. After a tough year going through a police investigation for abuse I face in church as a child I ended up walking in to a church in the summer at an all time low. I then did an Alpha course and became a Christian. Since doing this I have seen the most amazing transformation in my life and my recovery from anorexia. I can share articles, work with you on a piece and share pictures etc. My bio is below with a few links that you might find interesting, my campaign, my Instagram and a link to my Facebook authors page. I look forward to hearing from you Best wishes, Hope Bio: Hope Virgo is the Author of Stand Tall Little Girl, and an international leading advocate for people with eating disorders. Hope helps young people and employers (including schools, hospitals and businesses) to deal with the rising tide of mental health issues which affect one in four people and costs employers between £33 and £42 billion annually. She has been described by Richard Mitchell, CEO of Sherwood Forest Hospital, as "sharing a very powerful story with a huge impact". Hope is also a recognised media spokesperson, having appeared on various platforms including BBC News night, Victoria Derby-shire
Good Morning Britain, Sky News and BBC News. For four years, Hope managed to keep it hidden, keeping dark secrets from friends and family. But then, on 17th November 2007, Hope's world changed forever. She was admitted to a mental health hospital. Her skin was yellowing, her heart was failing. She was barely recognisable. Forced to leave her family and friends, the hospital became her home. Over the next year, at her lowest ebb, Hope faced the biggest challenge of her life. She had to find the courage to beat her anorexia.
