Arielle has a candid and compassionate way to create posts that resonate on a profound level. Her words ring in the ears and heart. Her experience and passion lend weight to her words, her intelligence makes them brilliant. She is an incredible resource to hundreds of women with eating disorders and/or body dissatisfaction...she understands the disease of perfectionism and defines pro-activity. She is an inspiring and uplifting writer to anyone, eating disordered or not.
Her blog is fabulous.  


Her writing inspires others to become a better version of themself. She unabashedly shares the most difficult details of her recovery from an ED and her wisest discoveries as a recovered sufferer so that she can help other people that are suffering.

In a world where so much that is written is used for gossip and falsity, my friend Arielle uses her words to make a difference. For this, she should receive the award.

Congratulations, Arielle B.!
