Video: "Perceptions"

This award-winning PSA was created by 16-year-old Savannah Dickson, who feels fortunate to have won her battle with anorexia and bulimia.

While she has good and bad days, she is now healthy and thriving. Her struggle began at 12 and two years later doctors told her parents she had just weeks to live. Today, she'll graduate high school early and has landed a full college scholarship. To help and support other girls struggling, she founded the "Healthy Mind, Healthy Body" club, members of which are featured in her video.
