Go Titans!

Hey Beautiful people!

In case you're out of the loop, Rewrite Beautiful just visited Cal State Fullerton and did an awesome Street Art Workshop with the WoMen's Center on campus. Rewrite Beautiful was stoked to be there since 95% of the women who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25.5 (See source here.) The college newspaper, The Daily Titan featured a story on us! Check it out here...

Students use chalk to draw awareness to eating disorders

Cal State Fullerton students expressed themselves in chalk Tuesday in front of the Humanities Building to let the world know what beautiful really means.Irvina Kanarek, a CSUF alumna, founded the nonprofit organization Rewrite Beautiful to spread awareness and prevent eating disorders among females. Rewrite Beautiful uses “street art” to get its message out.

The street art project was based on a mind mapping diagram. She started with two central words on the floor of the Quad, “beauty” and “pain,” and participants branched off the writing with what those words mean to them. The words that came off the central theme also had words or phrases branching off them.

The central words were surrounded by a set of footprints that were in the shape of a heart.

One passerby, Brandon George, 23, saw the project and decided to take part. He wrote “nonexistent,” branching off the word “flaws.”
