The Human Aspect of Jannecke

Growing up I dreamt of becoming a star and before I knew it my dream came true. The pressure and spotlight transformed my life depriving me of my childhood to the point where I felt like a product. Inside of me an emptiness grew while my self-worth deteriorated, to the point where I developed bulimia to cope with the pressure, anxiety and depression. Eventually I felt like a failure that never reached my potential and I did not see any hope.
