I as interest in animal welfaremlong before I became a vegetarian. Oddly enough, it was apes that made me try hard enough to make the switch. They provided the essential reminderi needed. I was 15 when I went vegetarian. I am 16 now. I am working on vegan, I have cut out the major eggs and dairy in my life, but still working on some.
I was a lacto ovo vegetarian for a little bit when I was 13, and now I’m a vegan and Im still 13! I joined peta2 yesterday! Just had a yummy apple and some Silk chocolate soy milk for breakfast! Yummy!
