Kjerstin Gruys

When Kjerstin Gruys got engaged, she was thrilled—until it came time to shop for her wedding dress. Having overcome an eating disorder years before, she found herself struggling to maintain a positive self-image as she planned her pending nuptials.

Mirror, Mirror Off the Wall will spark important conversations about body image and reclaiming the power to redefine beauty.
