Camila Mendes revealed her battle against eating disorders…
During an interview for Nylon magazine, the protagonist of Riverdale, spoke of the hard struggle she has had to face against her eating disorders and how the support of her fans has helped her to move forward every day.
“I recently started dealing with my own eating disorder, so while I was dealing with that, I thought it was a good opportunity to talk about it, because I’m still in that vulnerable state too, it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’ve already passed that stage of my life, I am so perfect and happy now, I am still struggling and I am still dealing with all these things, I may still have problems.
I have been kinder to myself for all the positive comments. I think that all the fans’ encouragement, and how much I see that they are going through the same thing, and how much I feel that I really have an opportunity here to inspire people and prevent people from going down that road, has shown that I could really make that difference in someone’s life… Then, the voices are starting to disappear. Well, they are less prominent in my head”: He confessed the star.
Camila also spoke about her participation in Proyecto HEAL, an organization that helps people with eating disorders and how it has also helped her in her fight against this disorder.
“I could not be happier with my decision to get involved with the HEAL Project, I can say from experience that eating disorders are serious mental illnesses.” Growing up, I saw my older sister suffer from one for many years, and I experienced periods of my life. life in which I have also had symptoms.”
We love that Camila is not only struggling to be healthy, we also admire her courage to speak to the world so that other girls and boys who are in the same situation feel identified and also struggle to recover.
