As I was working on my segment for On Our Minds, the producers decided they wanted the whole episode to be focused on the eating disorder recovery process. To help round out the coverage for this episode, they asked me if I would interview British social media influencer Ro Mitchell, who uses her platform to share about her eating disorder recovery process. I decided to focus the interview on the social media side of the work she does, because for better or worse, social media influences us all. I wanted to get Ro’s opinion on how social media both negatively and positively influences people’s thoughts body image and food, as Ro’s work was specifically focused on influencing teens to discover more body positive messaging. This piece showed another side of the eating disorder recovery story and helped include another perspective on a complex issue.
