Liana Rosenman, class of ‘14, is a double major in Education and History.  Liana transferred to Hofstra because of the School of Education, and since has taken roles in the honors societies for both of her majors, and serves as president of the History Honors Society – Phi Alpha Theta.  At age 12 Liana was diagnosed with anorexia and underwent treatment.  In treatment she made a close friend who she kept in contact with, and together they realized there were many patients battling the illness who needed support.  After identifying this need the two teenagers founded Project H.E.A.L. – Help to Eat, Accept and Live.  Project HEAL is a not-for-profit organization with chapters across the United States, and in Canada and Japan. They provide scholarship funding for people with eating disorders who cannot afford treatment, promote healthy body image and self-esteem, and serve as a testament that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible.  View her video and see what her education at Hofstra and work with Project HEAL has meant to Liana.
