Alyssa Palazzo is a new-found poet who began writing her first novel at the young age of 18. Her novel dear body is a beautiful piece of work that addresses her battles with mental illness, trauma, and an eating disorder. Palazzo grew up in Littleton, Colorado and for twelfth grade she moved to Pennsylvania to pursue a pre-professional career in ballet. The turmoil she faced while far from home paved way for her activism surrounding body positivity and mental illness. She is currently a student at The University of Colorado Boulder pursuing a degree in journalism to continue her pursuit to help other women battling eating disorders or depression. Her career as a poetry novelist and a self-love activist is just beginning. She hopes to inspire body positivity in as many women as possible and hopes that her willingness to share her experience may pave way for decreased stigma surrounding mental illness.
An emotionally raw, vulnerable collection of poetry illustrates a young woman’s painful trauma, which cultivated an environment for bulimia. This anthology allows her to powerfully articulate the suffocating effects of mental illness. The conclusion inspires body positivity and dialogue on recovery. The novel curtails the taboo surrounding depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress. dear body… gives voice to those silently suffering and hope to those who are recovering.
