BodyVU’s purpose is to promote positive body image through healthy eating, fitness, confidence, and community outreach. The Vanderbilt student body emphasizes the pressure of being beautiful and well dressed, which can lower self-esteem and confidence. BodyVU hopes to increase awareness of this issue both on-and off-campus and help girls love their natural body, not an unrealistic standard of beauty. As members of this Mayfield, we hope to improve our own self-image by learning to appreciate our own standards of beauty. We will also strive to keep our bodies healthy and become more aware of the many issues related to body image.
