Bus routes: 24my skin clears up, then I’ll talk to that guy.” “When I make more money, then I’ll take a vacation.” Kryzs blamed her body for the acting jobs she didn’t land or the guys that didn’t call. She comforted herself with food and punished herself with exercise. She describes herself as a mess – all because of a “when/then.” While living her dream as an actress in a Broadway show, she was completely miserable because she believed having a better body – a perfect body – would make her happier and more successful. In this inspiring and humorous keynote, Kryzs shares her personal story of how she won her own “perfect body game.” Cosponsored by SAIL, Eagle Entertainment, and EWU Women’s Studies Center.
