Do you consider yourself a vegan or a vegetarian? How long have you been one?

I've been a vegetarian for 14 years and a vegan for 4 years.

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

Since I was a kid it was unbearable the thought of eating an animal. As I became older I became even more conscious to my intuition that it was wrong by understanding the severity of the horrible conditions and reality about how the meat industry works. The environmental, animal, and health reasons are solidify my passion and commitment for being a vegan.

Care to share any favorite vegan recipes?

I'm pretty simple mostly raw salads so I'm no recipe guru but I enjoying adding grilled sweet potato to my vegan-sushi and grilled eggplant!

Any suggestions for future meet-up events?

have political meet-ups to have individuals sign petition's to certain animal rights laws. maybe set up a fun event, rather it's free local vegan food with mini lessons, to animal-free clothing in the local area... screenings of animal rights videos and providing local solutions. Maybe a pledging event of what people can do without too, just brainstorming. Or just having some meetings at these locations and hand out information to their customers or do little mini-education sessions for dinners =) just brainstorming.

Are there any great vegan resources/websites that we may have missed on our other page?

vegan action is good group and vegsource.com
