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!
When I was 15 years old I was given a DVD at school. I went home and watched it. It was a factory farm DVD. I watched entire film. Felt sick to my stomach to where I couldn’t even eat a piece a lettuce the rest of the night. The next day I did my research, reached out to my high school friends who were vegetarian. I gave up meat slowly. The last meat given up that was difficult for me at the time was fish. In a matter of time I gave up all meat completely. I was vegetarian up until I was 20 years old.
