Nomsa Praise Mpofu: Experiencing University as a Seventh Day Adventist

Although I can say I have been a Christian since I was born it’s not technically true because no one can be born a Christian but rather a person chooses to become one. It was a serious life decision I made at the age of twelve to become a Seventh Day Adventist Christian. To date, it is the 'university experience' that has tested my faith and my commitment to my God and beliefs the most. However, even though being a Seventh Day Adventist at university has been a challenging journey it has been a very rewarding one.

Alice Gibbs on 'Anorexia and Identity'

For the last eight years I have struggled with anorexia. Nowadays, I class myself as someone firmly in recovery, and so a lot of my problems should seemingly be a great deal better. Recovery is about letting go of your eating disorder, and this is the part that - although often overlooked - is extremely difficult.

Daisy Cooper story on 'Domestic Violence and Alcohol Addiction'

To be a part of a family where domestic violence is as commonplace as brushing your teeth is no easy task. You wake up in the morning dreading opening your door, wondering what you’re going to find downstairs. It’s an unlucky dip, a game of hide and seek that you never want to finish. But somebody has to do it, and if you happen to be the eldest child, you’re doomed to pick up the pieces every time.
