Hi, My name is Tayler. I am a freshman at Fossil Ridge High School, and have been a vegan for about 2 years, Wahoo! I first did it for health benefits, but once I educated myself on all sorts of abuse and cruelties that are present and standard in all of animal agriculture, animal testing, and all sorts of horrible things that happen to animals, I realized that others have to know. Its wrong to have a world in which we love all of our companions and mistreat and murder our hoofier and feathierier friends. I started a club at my high school called Fossil Ridge VegAlliance, and have about 50 members as of right now. I have about 26 corporate sponsors sponsoring it right now, and it is great to see the partnerships between organizations and like minded people. I am working on getting Veggie Burgers in my whole districts cafeterias, and I have a vegan support group that I just started and we have 8 families trying vegan! I also run a facebook group in which I show the benefits of a plant based lifestyle, by posting information, recipies, and cute pictures of animals :) That's just some of the things I like to do. I have 4 vegan dogs, fishies, and 2 horses (a crazy brother as well) I love my family, as they provide me with support and encouragement, and I am so grateful. I try to be positive all the time, and love to talk to people, so if you have any questions or need help, I am SO here for you! Thanks!
