Because People are more the there Eating Disorders. They should not be valued by a number on a scale but their growth as an individual. They should not be determined by their past circumstances but the progress they have made and the future they want to have. When medical professionals believe that someone is healthy, emotionally and physically, to pursue an education they should be allowed. When they pursue job, education,and support there family during a divorce and bankruptcy and STILL have made progress they should be allowed to return. When there BMI is four pounds short of goal and they have gained almost TWENTY pounds it can be safely said that upward trend shows progress. I know who I am, I know how I've grown, and I will do anything to go back to this college. Doctor Roy knew me nine months ago when I was struggling with my ED. She doesn't know who I've become, what I have done, and how I am done with my ED. My medical team agrees, the Sarah Lawrence community agrees, I know that I need to return to Sarah Lawrence College.

Letter to
Gaia Liotta Should Return to the Sarah Lawrence Community.

People are more than their Eating Disorders. They should be valued by their growth and not by a number on a scale. They should not be judged by the standards of who they were but who they have become. If medical professionals believe that someone is healthy, emotionally and physically, to pursue an education their advice should be followed. When they pursue a job, education, and support there family during a divorce and bankruptcy and STILL make progress they should be allowed to return. When their BMI is four pounds short of goal and they have gained almost TWENTY pounds it can be safely said that upward trend shows progress. I know who I am, I know how I've grown, and I will do anything to go back to this college. Doctor Roy knew me nine months ago when I was struggling with my ED. She doesn't know who I've become, what I have done, and how I am done with my ED. My medical team agrees, the Sarah Lawrence community agrees, I know that I need to return to Sarah Lawrence College.
