Carroll School of Management student Jessie Cheng explores the mental health struggles and entertainment industry pressures faced by pop stars in her new novel, Unglamored. Rose B.D., a young Chinese American singer, seems to have it all. But when symptoms of an eating disorder become too much to ignore, Rose finds herself having to choose between the life she has worked so hard to build and the severe aftermath of neglecting her needs. Cheng’s novel shines a light on the need to have better conversations surrounding mental health and highlights the power of vulnerability, resilience, and meaningful human connection.
