Early in 2012 I started reaching out to vegan friends on twitter to ask them to share their testimonials. My hope was that by getting vegans to share their stories we could educate and inspire others and give people first hand accounts to replace perceptions or stereotypes. I’m incredibly grateful to those that have participated. Their stories speak for themselves! If you enjoy the series please let us know!
Hi readers! Kitty here. I am a 39-year-old ethical vegan and a mum of three. Some of you may know me already as @veganchiq. If you are a twitter friend, you will know I am a very passionate campaigner for the equality of animals and I love educating those who would like to listen on the values of a vegan lifestyle.
I have been asked to share my journey into veganism, so we will begin.
I grew up in London in a working class family. We lived in a morbid grey high rise on the 11th floor. I am the eldest of three girls (my two sisters are vegetarian).
