Mariah Lanzer is a senior English major at Kent State University in Ohio. She loves to write creative nonfiction, drink too much coffee, and go on book shopping sprees. Mariah is currently writing a creative nonfiction honors thesis on her body and all of its "flaws." She finds that writing about these things and being honest with herself helps her get through the day.
Mariah hopes that her story will reach readers that experience the same struggles as her, whether it be the struggle of fitting in, or even the struggle of dealing with a body that doesn't feel like your own: you are beautiful just the way you are. There is no such thing as normal.
