    Hannah Bogard Parke: Gender Identity, Learning What Our Bodies Need, & Changing the Culture at Camp

    Hannah Bogard Parke: Gender Identity, Learning What Our Bodies Need, & Changing the Culture at Camp

    Hannah starts by sharing her childhood experiences with her body - from growing up in an outdoorsy, freeform environment, to eventually joining public school and facing new pressures related to appearance. She discusses gender fluidity, identity, and trying to fit the ideal body type. Hannah explains how camp impacted her as a kid and led her to find a career as a camp director. Finally, we delve into the many ways that Hannah is working to create an intentional culture around food and bodies at her camp. She talks about the methods they've implemented - treating food as fuel, asking for consent, and complimenting each other without talking about the way we look. Visit ywcavt.org to learn more about the camp that Hannah mentions. Plus! Check out buymeacoff.ee/everybodysstory to donate to the podcast.
