Washed Away: From Darkness to Light
Nikki DuBose was a successful model in the high-glam, high-stakes fashion industry. She seemed to have it all--while in actuality she wanted nothing but to kill herself. For more than seventeen years, she battled with issues of abuse, eating and body dysmorphic disorders, psychosis, addictions, and depression. More than once, she attempted suicide.
And then, in 2012, while her career was flying higher than ever, her mother died from addiction. This tragedy shook DuBose to her core, and she could do nothing but reevaluate her life and work to get better.
Washed Away: From Darkness to Light chronicles her road to recovery with a raw narrative and a deeply spiritual perspective. Providing insight into mental health issues and the long, sometimes scary, often frustrating path people walk to find light in the darkness, DuBose's memoir ultimately is one of hope and inspiration. Through self-reflection, the support of professional counselors, doctors, friends and family, and the shedding of shame, all things, including recovery, are possible.
