Today, I had the pleasure of interviewing the incredible Julia Depenti, the reigning US American Miss Ohio. Join me as we delve into her powerful story of resilience, self-acceptance, and the pursuit of empowering education.

Julia's platform, "Ed on ED: Education on Eating Disorders," is a remarkable initiative aimed at educating youth and their parents about the true nature of eating disorders, the potential consequences they can bring, and how to prevent them in oneself and others. By shedding light on this often-misunderstood topic, Julia is making a profound impact on the lives of countless individuals, helping them build healthier relationships with their bodies and foster a culture of self-acceptance.

Reflecting on her personal journey, Julia opens up about the challenges she faced in the past. For years, she struggled with trying to control her body, battling negative self-perceptions and engaging in harmful behaviors such as restrictive eating and excessive exercise. However, she found the strength to break free from this cycle and discovered a new path—one filled with self-love and acceptance.

Julia's transformation is a testament to her unwavering determination and resilience. Through self-reflection and personal growth, she has learned to let her body do what it does best—to embrace its natural abilities and celebrate its unique beauty. By sharing her own story, she empowers others to embark on their own journeys of self-discovery and self-acceptance.

When asked about her favorite quote, Julia shares a gem that resonates deeply with her: "Live life full, full of experiences and on a full tummy!" T

his quote encapsulates her outlook on life—embracing every opportunity, savoring every moment, and nourishing oneself physically and emotionally.

Julia's commitment to spreading awareness and education on eating disorders is transforming lives and fostering a culture of compassion and understanding. Through her platform, she encourages individuals to embrace their bodies, celebrate their uniqueness, and prioritize their overall well-being.

As we conclude our conversation, Julia leaves us with a powerful message—loving ourselves fully and unconditionally is the key to unlocking our true potential.
