Erika Esprio is currently a senior at La Serna High School in Whittier, California. For her senior project, she participated in Proud2Bme On Campus at California State University, Northridge to learn about media’s influence on body image. This fall she will be a freshman at DePaul University in Chicago majoring in business and accounting and hopes to bring Proud2Bme to her campus to promote body positivity.
Proud2Bme is an online community created by and for teens. We cover everything from fashion and beauty to news, culture, and entertainment—all with the goal of promoting positive body image and encouraging healthy attitudes about food and weight.
