BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

Hometown: Jupiter, Florida (I am of this world—no worries!) Fave bands: Oh, boy. I like my music how I like tapas:a little of everything. I'm into Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons, John Mayer, Adele, Colbie Caillat, Florence and the Machine, Lana Del Rey, Dave Matthews, Shakira, Lupe Fiasco, Beyoncé (duh), and Michael Jackson (double duh). About me: Born and raised a Florida beach bum, I love to scuba dive and be outside in nature. Somehow that led me to the arctic tundra of Boston for college, where I earned a degree in English and theology and learned to love snow angels as much as the sandy ones. Now, my two younger brothers, who collectively have a foot in height over me; my Tibetan terrier sister, Maggie; and my fantastic parents soak up the Atlantic sun while I hold down the Pacific. Mostly, I'm known for showing friends and fam the fabulosity of being vegan via cookies, curry, cake, and crafty sushi bonanzas and for calling dibs on animal costumes at protests. J I love: The Office, wearing socks 24/7, Snapchat, homemade coconut ice cream, CHOCOLATE, schnuggling with my animal friends, Spanish dancing (shout-out to PR Mamma), Victorian era lit and Jane Austen's sassy irony, morning smoothies, all things pumpkin, borderline sunburns, running, yoga, swimming, tennis (I work out), and garlicky kale bouquets in my belly. I hate: Marshmallows *gag*, not getting enough protein (joking!), Michael Vick, and when people stick out their tongues and wriggle them around (get it together, Miley!). Why I went vegan: The universe aligned my sophomore year of college. A Buddhism class brought me to a place of compassion and openness to change, and I was mega-procrastinating on a paper, trolling Ellen's website. I learned about The Gentle Barn, watched a slaughterhouse video that I couldn't forget about, and e-read Skinny Bitch (all before starting my paper, woops). Tada! Insta-vegan. Randomness: Short-term memory? What's that? Also, I struggle to smile for a pic with my mouth closed. But I can put on mascara with my mouth closed (duh, is that even a real thing?).
