Pic of Zoe AlbertHere at peta2, few things make us giddier than hearing about awesome, compassionate activists doing what they do best—speaking up for animals!

Enter: 18-year-old vegetarian Zoe Albert.

At the age of 11, the aspiring veterinarian took a stand against the cruel fur industry and started her very own company, Faux Paws, through which she creates and sells super-cute faux-fur flip-flops. As if that weren’t awesome enough, Zoe also donates all proceeds ($20,000 so far!) to animal advocacy groups.

Because of her hard work and dedication in speaking out against the fur trade, Zoe was named a 2012 finalist by the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, an annual prize that celebrates 25 inspiring young people who have made a significant positive difference for people and our planet.

Way to go, Zoe! :)

Think you’ve got what it takes to be a Barron Prize finalist?
