Hey there - I'm Clara. I wanted to introduce myself to the new friends out there! 💕
I'm an aspiring Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, working as a Mother/Baby Nurse Extern as I complete my BSN in May'18. Here at Clara's Clean Eats, I post recipes, accountability sessions, and honest sweaty selfies 💦 I'm a woman, a daughter, an immigrant, a friend, a girlfriend, a healthcare professional, and a member of society. These roles have taught me to cherish human connection, empower others, and fight for equal rights. But most importantly, I am Clara. And I just want to love.
I first started this account in 2012, purely to keep myself accountable when I weighed 165lbs during my sophomore year of high school. I struggled with self-love, altered body image, amenorrhea and disordered eating as I began to lose weight and become underweight and experience bouts of orthorexia. Little did I know, I would find a passion for serving others - especially my fellow ladies. I'd be lying if I said that today, I completely love myself 100%. I still find myself to be flawed and imperfect, but I see power and uniqueness in those imperfections.
I don't think it's a coincidence that you found me on your explore page. I think it was fate. (And algorithms. Thanks, Instagram.) We may not have the same religious or political views, but I'm here to show you that yes - life sucks sometimes. At some points in your life, you will doubt the person you are, and the place that you're in. But those moments fuel you to become the person you are destined to be. Let's be unstoppable - together✨
