ENERGISING and inspirational speaker Bronwyn Milkins is on her way to Busselton to share her personal journey towards love and acceptance and to encourage young women to love their bodies.
Bronwyn, who has completely recovered after being hospitalised with anorexia, hopes to share her personal experience and encourage women to look beyond achieving an ideal that doesn’t exist.
“I was hospitalised with anorexia and I have completely recovered after undergoing treatment for bulimia and other programs, so I’m using that as a starting point for conversation,” she said.
“I think these conversations are necessary because it’s helpful for people to talk about it and know that there is no shame in it.
“I want people to know that recovery is possible, there is help out there and encourage people to live everyday to the fullest.”
The 25-year-old is currently studying at the University of WA and Curtin University and was awarded the WA Young Community Leader of the Year 2016, WA Young Person of the Year finalist and winner of the Act-Belong-Commit Youth Award.
The workshop retreat provides psychoeducation, information, art therapy and holistic strategies to assist young girls and women to learn to love and care for themselves, become empowered and develop a healthy body image.
