AWARDS: Girl's personal struggles earn her media award (USA)

Girl's personal struggles earn her media award
Berkeley Youth Radio producer opened up about eating disorder
By Hanna Tamrat, STAFF WRITER
In her hospital bed three years ago, a frail 13-year-old girl put an entry in her "Hunger's Diary" each day, documenting how she lost control of her body while trying to control her life.

That diary will take Lauryn Silverman, a Berkeley Youth Radio producer, to New York this week to receive a Gracie Allen Award at the American Women in Radio and Television's 30th annual Gala.
