Are you a Vegetarian or Vegan?

I am a vegetarian

How long have you been Vegetarian/Vegan?

I took the plunge into vegetarian lifestyle at the age of seven on my own. So I've been a vegetarian 18 years.

What made you decide to become Vegetarian/Vegan?

At such a young age it was very "animals are cute" driven but as I got older and more read in environmental and health issues it quickly became more to minimize exposure to hormones, antibiotics and other contaminants. Also, the degredation of habitats and land (especially in developing countries) for agriculture concerns me greatly.

Are you interested in volunteering for outreach events? No experience is necessary; just passion for a great cause!

I am a recent graduate from Virginia Tech with a Wildlife Sciences and Biology double major. I love anything outdoors, especially hiking and kayaking. I have two dachshunds who love to accompany my boyfriend and I on all our adventures.

What Ashley H. is saying about this Meetup Group

I think this is a great idea and I look forward to getting more involved in the future!
