Nynja (34), suffers from anorexia nervosa, has a borderline personality disorder, commits self-mutilation and has made several suicide attempts. As a teenager, Nynja came across 'Pro Ana' on the internet (sites that help vulnerable girls, with tips on how to become as thin as possible and how to end your life). Her physical and mental health has been on a downward spiral from here. When Nynja becomes homeless she lives on the street for a while until she is assigned a place within 'assisted living'. Nynja is very creative, loves to dry and burn herbs and collects feathers almost obsessively.
