Recovering anorexic Mandy Kaye made history this week as she graduated from Cambridge with starred first-class honours and a distinction — the only student in her geography faculty to do so.
But it could have all been so different for the 25-year-old, who, five years ago, was given just days to live.
Ms Kaye, from Southgate, North London, has been battling anorexia for nine years. At her lowest, she weighed just under five stone.
Now, hopeful of a making full recovery, she is determined to inspire others to do the same.
