Cornell University (potentially) majoring in Government, Performing Arts, and English,

Gloria Oladipo is a 20 year old Black woman from Chicago, IL; she is a rising junior at Cornell University (potentially) majoring in Government, Performing Arts, and English. She is a survivor of an eating disorder which she had struggled with for over five years. In the peak of her illness, Gloria had major difficulties in securing a treatment team that could understand how her eating disorder and co-morbid illnesses intersected with her race and gender. Currently, while she is pursuing recovery, she writes about her experiences and provides resources to other Black women and women of color struggling with eating disorders and mental illness generally.
