My name is Chanara Greene and I am a senior at Northwest University in Kirkland, WA. This year I will be playing for the Women’s basketball team. Yeah, I never thought I would be able to say that but thank God for his hand in my life! My two best friends that I have been playing with since 8th grade will also be playing its really crazy how this all worked out. We are collegiate athletes!
Well among many things I am a sister to 4 beautiful ladies, an aunt to 5 little nuggets, a friend, an office assistant, an athlete, a summer RA.
I am very passionate about health and having healthy self-esteem. I struggled with anorexia for almost 5 years, with some bulimic and binge tendencies mixed in over the time. I am a pretty tall girl (about 6’ 2) and at my lowest weight I was weighing what is considered the healthy weight for a girl who is 5’0.
My health was going down the drain and I really didn’t even realize it. I almost lost my driving privileges due to my extremely low heart rate, my organs were suffering, and I couldn’t play basketball my junior year of high school.
Thank God for my great support group. My family, friends, and the counseling and treatment I received because of all of those wonderful people I am completely healthy and healed today!
I’m just working hard to live an adventurous and fear-free life by God’s grace; fueled by lots of love, laughter, dancing, food, exercise and truth. Thanks for stopping by, have fun looking around! 🙂
