Welcome to the Georgia Tech BOLD blog! BOLD stands for Being Ourselves and Loving Diversity.
Thank you for checking out the BOLD Blog today! My name is Sarah Strohmenger and I am a Hall Director in the Freshman Experience program at Georgia Tech. I have a Master of Education degree in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education, as well as a Certificate in College and University Teaching from Ball State University. Discussion and advocacy in the areas of body image and self-worth are very important to me, and I’m so excited to be a part of contributing to the conversation through BOLD. I hope we can experience new perspectives, questions, and discussions together through this forum!
My name is Julia Greenspan and I am a graduate intern in the Office of Health Promotion at Georgia Tech for the 2015-2016 academic year! I am currently enrolled as a Master of Public Health student at Emory University, and I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Women and Gender Studies from Clark University. As a young woman who grew up in the United States, body image is something with which I have a complicated relationship. I am excited to be able to post on the BOLD blog and share my thoughts about body image with you over the next year!

My name is Lo Denmon. I’m a graduate assistant in the Women’s Resource Center at Georgia Tech.
