I just wrapped up an interview with my friend Jamessina on her awesome revamped blog, Jamessina.com. We talked about the Vegan Testimonials Project but she also asked me some questions about my own journey. If you’re interested in checking it out, you can read it here!
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!
The body is the best damn machine one will ever encounter. It is also the only lasting thing with you for the time you are here on this earth. That is why I am vegan. To ensure that this physical self I use during my journey is the strongest, most thoughtful, most compassionate, most inspiring self it could possibly be.
I am the mother to two of the most incredible little people I have ever met. Two bright eyed, brilliant, funny people. They inspire me each and every day- instilling a burning desire to be a shining example. It is my responsibility to raise them with a respect for all life – the lives of others as well as themselves – and this will be a foundation upon which they can make educated and thoughtful decisions later on.
