Posted July 3, 2012 by Diana Mendoza

Pigs are, without a doubt, one of my favorite animals! Why? Here’s a whole list of reasons why. But the fact that they like music, snuggle, and are just as smart as my canine companions all helped me decide that they do NOT belong on my dinner plate.

If that list made you smile you’ll love this week’s prize… peta2’s “I’m Not A Schnitzel” t-shirt! Soft, comfy cotton in a fun, summer color adorned with the cutest cartoon pig ever? What are you doing still reading this?! Hurry up and enter the contest below, go!

*The winner will be chosen at random from submitted animal-friendly comments in which the commenter tells us who his or her favorite vegan role model is and why. Entries must be received by July 10, 2012. The winner will be chosen at random and notified on July 12, 2012.

    My friend Tyler from school is not only a vegan role model, but a awesome role model in general. He is completely straight edge and not afraid to voice his opinion. He has taught me to stand up for what I believe in and not to care what other people think. Tyler has inspired me to make a difference wherever I can. He also has his own cancer charity where he skates long distances to raise money for research. I’m so glad I Tyler and am so proud of everything he is doing!! :)

    Josh, the lead singer of You Me at Six
    He is my vegetarian role model because I met him at Warped Tour this summer and he was SO nice to me! He wasn’t some stuck up rock star. It meant so much to me that he took time to meet his fans and connect with us. He is very open with his vegetarian choices and it is so empowering to me to see someone in the spotlight using their fame to speak up for animals. (:

    My favorite vegan role model is a girl named Valerie. She happens to be a grad student and is one of the most intelligent fun loving people that I have ever met. When I first met her, I asked her what made her want to go vegan. Her answer was “Do you eat your friends?”. Without having to think for a second. How can you argue with that? That one statement, totally changed my life.

    Bif Naked is my favorite vegan, because she is so at peace with life as a whole, posts delish foods on her twitter page, and posts some real inspirational comments on her blog and twitter page. She even does bouts of raw food eating too! The amount of love she gives to her companion dog is just amazing. Even after overcoming cancer, she is still positive, and is very active in her local hospital to help others who are over coming cancer. Such a powerful woman!

    My favourite vegan role model is my cousin. When we were younger, I did EVERYTHING she did. And as we both got older, she converted from vegetairan to vegan. This was a big deal for me, but in the past 5 years with her help, I have done the same. She is my role model, my idol.

    My favorite Vegan Role Model would have to be ANYONE who is Vegan. Everyone who is Vegetarian/Vegan is an inspiration to me and i’ve been working on many things to help animals because of everyone else’s support on animals. I have loved animals since i first heard about peta in 4th grade (forever ago) but when peta2 was created i could do more than just be a teen with a voice. i gave stickers and wore my shirt with pride and i feel comfortable because of everyone’s support :) thanks EVERYONE who is a Vegan/Vegetarian :)

    My Vegetarian/Vegan Role Model would have to be Christofer Drew. I think he has has an amazing outlook on life and how society really is and i admirer him for that. He has alot of fans being a singer and he makes sure his fans are aware of how becoming a vegetarian and/or vegan can really make an impact on this world. For a healthier lifestyle and to stop animal cruelty that people have let go on for to long. Truly an Amazing inspiration. ♥

    Not to sound self absorbed by any means but i look at myself as my own vegan “Role model”. I’m the only person in the group of people i associate with that is giving the vegan lifestyle a chance. My family continues to eat meat and granted i don’t eat at the table with the Fam as much anymore but all in all Im doing good for my fellow animal friends. As i was leaving WarpedTour2012 some guy handed me a PETA DVD, and since then Ive been vegetarian so i do give mad props to that one guy.

    MY favorite vegn role model would be my friend Norea:) She’s been a vegan her whole life and she always find fun compromises to meat products or foods that don’t fit into her diet. For one, she is the reason I am in LOVE with vegan marshmallows! Ha Ha Delicious:) And she is always there for me to ask questions about my diet. I myslef, am a vegatarian, but hope when I am older to make the transition to being a vegan:)

    My favorite vegan model would be my grandpa, because he grew up on a farm eating animals his whole life, he is 77 and has been a vegan for 2 years. His wife and children were against it but he didnt care. He said he did it for me because we had a family get together and i was the only one not eating the meat, he said he wanted to join me. From that day on he has changed his farm to a non-slaughter farm, and sits with me at every family event:) i love him<3

    Who is my vegan role model? I wish I could say that she was a famous actress, but I can’t. My vegan role model would have to be my teacher. She has taught me so many things about becoming a vegetarian/vegan, and I have to say that without her, I don’t think I could be a vegetarian right now. She is always sharing recipes with me, and has been a constant support system. Her 7 years of full-fledged vegetarianism has given me hope that with more people like her in the world, animals with be safe.

    Not to be cocky but my favorite vegan role model is myself. I deserve to thank myself. Its not easy going vegan when your whole family has been eating meat since you where born. Thinking and eating different is so hard when pretty much everyone you know eats animals. Yes there are doctors, advocates, animal activist to thank but at the end of the day its up to me to make good decisions. Thank you.

    My favorite vegan role model would probably be Lea Michele, currently an actress on the show Glee. I really admire the goals of the show and it means a lot to me that she lives her dream in front of the camera and on the Broadway stage and she lives a vegan lifestyle. It seems that Hollywood is such a fast paced world and I love that she has taken the time to slow down and remember what is important to her. <3

    My role model is Christofer drew ingle. He is great with all he does. If he’s not vegan then he’s vegetarian. Either way he loves animals and he shows it. He’s never silent about his beliefs and he always has a PETA table at his concerts. He’s my role model becuase I aspire to be like him and be vegan. I’m vegetarian now but I hope to be vegan one day and make the world a better place for the animals that we all love.

    Christofer drew ingle. By finding the video “Meet your Meat” on his myspace page 7 years ago, i was inspired to give up consuming meat for good. He has such a loving, peaceful and caring mindset towards all living creatures that i find very admirable. He is inspiring in not only his stance on animal rights, but his stance on bettering ourselves and the world around us.

    My favorite vegan role model is my friend Corrine. She has a very busy life since shes the stage manager at our high school theatre, yet she still manages to show us that making choices that help animals is easy. She is always understanding and open minded towards those who do eat meat, and is always willing to let everyone try whatever she is eating. She’s my veggie buddy and inspired me to stop eating gelatin. Corrine’s caring, open-minded attitude makes her a stellar role model.

    My favourite is my mom! She was a vegan growing up in Vietnam and that was extremely difficult as she lived in a farm – but in the same time, easy because she saw the slaughter and knew what happens to animals that were meant for food. Even more respect because she never raised me as a vegan (my father isn’t) so now that I am trying my best to be one, I am so proud of her for being a completely vegan for 40 years and counting!

    The greatest vegan role model I have is my friend, Daniel Hennessy. He is a great friend that helped me stay vegetarian all this time. I am the only veg in the household and he helps me remember that im not alone. I also realy look up to Ghandi; greatest person ever.

    My favorite vegan role model is Christofer Drew! I fell in love with his music and style. While I was doing a project on him for school I found out he was vegetarian. I saw a video of him talking about it and it showed the PETA website. I decided to go vegetarian after seeing all the pain animals go through living on factory farms. Christofer Drew convinced me to save the lives of animals and I’m sure many others can say the same(:

    i don’t really know who my favourite vegan role model is.. probably Christofer Drew, but my favourite vegetarian role model is definitely my sister(: having another vegetarian in the house certainly makes meal times a bit easier and more enjoyable. especially with me being only 14, it’s tough getting the right foods in my diet$: i love having the support.

    My favourite vegan role model is probably my little sister.
    She’s five years old and she decided to become vegan after we visited a farm and she fell in love with a cow, the farm owner then mentioned the cow was ready for slaughter soon and she broke down and cried. She also inspired me to become vegan with her.

    My favorite vegan role model is most definitely Ghandi. He was so giving to both animals and humans alike, down to earth, completely selfless, and completely pure hearted. Ghandi was completely uncorrupted, and spread so many wonderful lessons about peace, and freedom. Ghandi’s message actually converted me to veganism, in a respectful attempt to be like my role model. He actually came up with the idea of veganism, contrary to popular belief, Donald Watson only named the dietary habit. Ghandi was inspirational, innovative, caring, and is a great role model to people everywhere.

She is such a passionate and caring person, and taught us in class about the benifits to animals and the environment of being veg(etari)an. She even works at a primate sanctuary and helps make life better for monkeys that are rescued from labs, the entertainment industry, and people who keep them as pets.

    Yeah, I’m a dork, but I’d go with Bryan Konietzko. Why is he, you ask? The co-creator and executive producer of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

    Wow, that sounds even lamer when I type it than it did in my head. But hey, he’s vegan, and he brought us Avatar: The Last Airbender which is in my list of Top Ten Best Things Ever to Grace the Earth. Cause again, Avatar: The Last Airbender!

    Bill Clinton is absolutely my vegan hero. He may not have been vegan for long (I was vegan long before his transition) but he’s a smart man doing things the right way for good reasons. He challenges the idea that we’re just a bunch of uneducated hippies who are doing horrible things to our bodies to save the animals. He’s a successful man and, overall, people loved him as President, so I think it’s important to have someone like him on our side =]

    He is my favorite vegan role model because he’s realistic about life, down to earth, encouraging, thoughtful, not scared to say what he thinks and he’s not another band trying to just earn money. He cares about his fans and hopes his music will help them. Many other bands wouldn’t encourage you to download their music for free since they’re after the money, but he doesn’t care, just as long as you get ahold of it some how and enjoy it. He is also my favorite vegan role model because he cares about animals and tries to spread animal awareness.

    My favorite vegan role model is definitely Christofer Drew. I adore the music that Never Shout Never produces, so that’s a plus, but what gets me about him is that he lives for it. And he takes a point of view that people who aren’t necessarily gaga for animal rights can’t argue with: your health. I really like that he doesn’t care what people think at all; I love his free spirit and how that reflects in his campaigns.
