She's a happy-go-lucky teenager who loves to be outdoors and just be herself.
She had recently shifted her diet plans. Miss Lietzow had sort out her eating habits very nicely, and it seemed like she was leading a very healthy lifestyle.
Since she weighed only 80 pounds, her family was worried about her.
She just like every other teenager was obsessed with her calorie intake. She had read about the health benefits of vegan diets and decided to adopt it.
She loved the recipes of a vegan diet and started sharing her passion for food online.
Her reason to go on extreme diets wasn't that she wanted to get healthy. She was combating some serious confidence and insecurity related to herself. Those issues still persisted.
In March 2016, she had a fight with her mom and sister and the stress became too much for her. She swallowed down too many pills along with alcohol.
Her father found her in time, and she was immediately taken to the hospital.
Doctors tried to restore her circulation. A lot of damage had been done due to the pills. Due to the lack of oxygen, they had to induce a coma to save her life.
The drugs given to her so that the docs could save her life had compromised the blood supply to her three fingers.
She confessed about her suicide attempt to everyone in her family. Luckily, her life was saved.
This incident has been an awakening for her and now she feels stronger than ever. She's thankful to her family for supporting her even during the most terrible time.
