Erica is beautifully honest about her journey, including her battle with an eating disorder, I really respect her for that. Not an easy subject to be open and honest about. Thanks for trusting me with your words and your story Erica!

Earlier this week, she shared her thoughts on her blog Girl With A Satchel about how she felt about being on the cover of a magazine (instead of being the one writing about the magazine).. definitely check it out!
