How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

I view it as I would religion. I have my beliefs, and am happy to share personal experience, but it isn't a goal of mine to try and convert anyone for the sake of their salvation.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

I've been feeling somewhat alone in my endeavor for a healthier life through diet. It would be nice to have friends who share the same sentiments.

If you had to choose, which of these do you care the most about? Animal welfare, your health, the planet, or humanitarian efforts?

I immediately both felt and saw results. I get labs drawn monthly, and since going vegan, there has been significant improvement.

How would you label yourself when it comes to lifestyle and nutrition? (Vegan, vegetarian, plant-based foodie, vegan-curious, omnivore, locavore, etc.)

I first went vegan in the middle of September 2012 Kinda fell off the wagon Nov-Dec, and went back on since Jan 1 2013. 3 cheers for New Years Resolutions!

If you've already "Gone Vegan", why'd you do it? If you're considering "Going Vegan", what's inspiring you consider making the decision?

A friend of mine had 'gone vegan' and I saw how much it changed his life. I barely scratched the surface of knowledge on the subject, and it was enough to convince me to make the change.


Hello, my name is Serena AKA Sogi. Diet is an important topic for me due to it having a such a huge impact on my health.
