Northeastern University sophomore Terri* spends at least a few minutes a day critiquing her body in the mirror. “I have this extra fat on my stomach that I hate,” she said, squeezing her abdomen with both hands. Terri is an articulate, responsible, political science major and sociology minor who looks and sounds mature beyond her years.
