Siri Kazilionis' Personal Page
My name is Siri Kazilionis. I'm seventeen years old and a junior at the Winsor School in Boston. I am so excited to return to the NEDA walk for my third time, and with the whole Recovery Warriors 617 team!
Recovery from an eating disorder is the hardest thing I ever have done, but to this day, it is the most important choice I have ever made for me and my body. I am honored to be able to spread the story of my struggle with eating disorders so that no one has to endure the pain alone. Over my seventh through ninth grade year, I struggled with anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, which eventually lead to hospitalization in a resedential treatment center. Although I was lucky enough to recieve treatment that saved my life, not everyone can pay for the extremely high price treatment centers, and many forms of insurance do not cover eating disorder treatment. NEDA walks not only will help provide more treatment to those who cannot afford it, but also educate people about eating disorders, and connect people with help and others in the recovery community.
With organizations such as NEDA, we can end eating disorders once and for all. We are all worth so much more than society's standards of beauty. We all deserve to be confident in ourselves and love our bodies. Thanks to NEDA, my body is my best friend. It helps me function every day, and I love every inch of it.
Now that I am in a place of true recovery, I am able to share my story with my community, help others, and help end body shaming in our society. I am a co-founder and co-head of the Wellness club at my school which pursues these goals, as well as RecoveryWarriors617 (an Instagram page) which connects individuals in the recovery community in the Boston area.
I am so grateful for the friends and family who have endlessly supported me in my recovery. Without you and your love- I would not be able to fight as I am doing now. Thank you.
Please help donate so that NEDA can continue to battle eating disorders! No one can fight a battle this hard alone. But together, we can do anything. And I hope to see you at the walk! Anyone is welcome- and every single participant is appreciated.
