MRS. MINNESOTA, VALENTINA KOSTENKO  speaks on her platform "AWARENESS TO EATING  DISORDERS   I know what is it like to suffer from such a destructive disease. In my case, the most difficult aspect of being controlled by an eating disorder was the internal battle with my thoughts.  With just one thought I fell into a trap of believing a lie that I was not beautiful enough. Believing in the lie put me under control of it. I lost sight of my identity and the purpose I was created for. It was only through God’s grace and love that I was healed, and my mind was completely renewed.                                                                                          For more information go to:
