[VIDEO] Celiac Student: It’s Hard to Be “That Girl”

UC Berkeley senior gives candid account of the social challenges in living gluten-free.

Cecilia Bonaduce is not a picky eater. In fact, “My only criterion a food must meet is that it not be poisonous,” she says.

Cecilia, a senior at University of California, Berkeley, has celiac disease. This semester, she created a video for her Digital Storytelling class that addresses the social implications of having special dietary needs. The video is a powerful look at how celiac disease and gluten intolerance affect far more than an individual’s diet.

A longtime NFCA supporter, Cecilia included a special surprise for NFCA in the video.
