My name is Kathleen and one of my passions is creating peace in the world. While there are so many wonderful ways to create peace in our world, my main focuses right now are creating peace and harmony through education, specifically educating the world about body image issues and the dangers of eating disorders, and creating peace in my daily life. How do body image issues and eating disorders relate to creating peace you might wonder? Well, imagine if all people (especially women) were less focused on what they weigh/look like --we could transform all that time and angst spent dwelling on body image into powerful voices working for world peace and harmony. The amount of time those w/eating disorders or body image issues spend worrying about what they look like or how many calories they eat in a day, for example, lessens the time they have to spend doing good in their world. The healthier body images we teach, nuture, and cultivate, the healthier our world will become. It's my dream, albeit it's only one small step in the process of continuing world peace. Please feel free to write and share. Peace and love, Kathleen

What/who changed my life and why
Wow. So many people continue to change and shape my life. If you look at my role models you'll see most of them :) Anna and Kitty Westin, Celeste Pickard, and Leslie and Mr. George and Jim helped save my life...so I count them among the top role-models.
