Riverdale star Camila Mendes spoke to Women’s Health Magazine about her personal life experiences, including her sexual assault.

Riverdale casted Camila Mendes in 2017, when the show originally aired, and has since continued to blossom into a beautiful, powerful woman, on and off-screen. So much so that Women’s Health Magazine placed her on the October cover with a feature story about her mental and physical health journey.

In this story, Mendes discussed her assault that occurred while she was in college, and gave the corresponding background behind her tattoo on her rib that says “To Build A Home.”

She also discloses details on her relationship with food and her body issues, focusing on how she has become stronger.

Mendes continued to suggest that she intends to be the role model that she wished she’d had, and it seems she’s off to an amazing start. We can’t wait to see what’s next on her journey.
