REbeL at AU's Story

Founded in January 2017 by Serena Nangia, Evelyn Krippner, and Makenzie Gold-Quiros, REbeL at American University is a university-based peer-education program. REbeL was created on campus to address the lack of education and dialogue about body image issues, eating disorders, and self-esteem, among other issues.

The first of its kind at American University, REbeL strives to raise awareness of issues that are prevalent in college students while also providing safe spaces for community dialogue and healing. The below information outlines the importance of what REbeL does every day.
