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

Vegan since 2011

What made you decide to become vegan/vegetarian?

I love animals, but like many young people I didn't put much thought into the fact that by eating meat and animal products I was contributing to the suffering and slaughter of the creatures I purported to love. A vegan friend of mine lent me a book by Jonathan Safran Foer entitled 'Eating Animals,' and I came to learn all the horrific truths of the factory farming industry. After that there was no way I could go back to enjoying the same foods. I was incensed by what I learned, and deeply ashamed that I myself had been contributing to it, and I decided to devote as much time and energy as I can to spread the word and open people's eyes to the reality of where their food comes from. The fact is that veganism is not only good for animals, it's good for the environment and good for us. So for me it is a no-brainer!
