When did you become vegan and why?
I became aware of veganism in August 2008 and began transitioning into vegan/vegetarianism in September the same year. I was inspired by the consciousness of the lifestyle (idea) and it felt right with my developing spirituality.

How has life changed since you became vegan?
Without exaggeration my life greatly improved but the beginning was very difficult. I couldn’t imagine a meatless meal but now l can never imagine a life without plants. I’m friends with the earth.

What challenges do you face as a vegan and how do you overcome them?
In my current situation variety can be a bit challenging but challenges are meant to be faced and dealt with, veganism has so many options that compensate for every lack, the key is knowing where to look.

What do you enjoy most about being vegan?
The learning curve. It’s like taking baby steps with food. Veganism has taught me so much about the science of food on the body. That’s what I enjoy most, learning new things.

What do you see in the future for veganism?
I see a New World, a world that’s free from oppression and unnecessary pain. I also see it to be a lot healthier lol.

What’s your favourite meal/food?
To be honest, almost anything scrumptious😂
