Ana de Pedro

Ana de Pedro is a senior at East Carolina University studying accounting. She is in her third year of recovery thanks to UNC Hospital's Inpatient program and the support of friends, family and her health care team. She tries to bring eating disorders awareness to her campus and be an advocate and source of support for girls in her school struggling with eating disorders. She can be found either in a coffee shop or in the ocean and truly believes she was meant to be a mermaid.
