Ana's Hardcore Girls
My name is Christoph Krumm and I'm a high school intern at KUOW Radio, the NPR (National Public Radio) affiliate in Seattle, WA. As a group, we are producing a show on teen diets and in our research, it became apparent that the pro-ana movement is extremely relevant to this topic. In an effort to obtain the most accurate inside look at this, I came to this blog. I am looking for any teenager who would be willing to speak to me in an interview on the topic of this pro-ana movement preferrably living in or around Seattle, WA. Keep in mind that in no sense will pro-anorexia be condemned or put down, we are simply looking for a primary source. Please feel free to contact me through livejornal or IM: littlekrumm80|
When i posted this in othe communities, i got a lot of heat from many users angry at me for trying to boost my ratings and patronize others. I am in no sense trying to do this as I do not have a radio show with ratings, it is a one-time documentary. Contrary to what you may think, getting your side of the story out will make the story bias-free. Instead of simply speaking to professors who are against all of this, people will be able to learn why these communities are important. I kindly ask the mod or mods of this community to please not delete this post. I am looking for volunteers. Nobody is being forced to do anything and i dearly hope i haven't insulted anyone.
Thank you very much for your time.
P.S.- You can help even if you don't live around the Seattle area. Phone interviews are a possibility.
