My passion for animal rights, the environment, fitness, whole foods, and respect has led me to one thing:
Growing up I was kind of a “tom boy“. You know, catching snakes, climbing trees, riding quads, spending all my time outside, ect. I was never into Barbies or playing house; I loved exploring, learning about different types of animals, taking millions of nature photos, and traveling. Everything I did revolved around nature. As I got older, I became more aware. More aware that the environment is in serious danger and humans are responsible for it. I began to feel guilty for buying daily water bottles, burning up unnecessary gasoline and fuel, wasting paper, and most of all eating animals.
My sophomore year in high school I decided to go vegetarian. I no longer had the desire to eat animals and besides, they don’t even taste good. From that point forward my whole world had changed. I began to educate myself on factory farming, the food industry, and basic nutritional needs. After becoming vegan as a new year’s resolution for 2010, my passion for what I believe in could not be stronger. I feel as if I have found hidden keys to true health. Today, I am learning new things from great people like all of you. The blogging world has been a wonderful experience for me and I’m glad to share everything I know with all of you because you return the favor for me.
If you came to this blog expecting to see well written posts and high quality photos, I’m afraid you came to the wrong place. I blog for fun and I actually dislike writing. Although I’m still learning, I’ve always loved photography, however, food photography is rather new to me so just deal.
I am currently 19 years old and attending a community college with hopes to transfer somewhere better in a few years (finger’s crossed). I work full-time in the deli of a gourmet food’s store with very limited vegan product. I cannot wait to get a real job someday! I also vendor at my local farmers market with my boyfriend selling specialty foods and lots of vegan baked goods.
In the future I plan on becoming a registered dietician and possibly owning my own restaurant/deli/bakery someday with somebody special. <3
Lucky for me, I have an amazing family who have helped mold me into the person I am today. With my mother’s creativity and carefree spirit and my father’s knowledge and ambition I am confident that I will do a lot of good in the world.
I really enjoying meeting new people and keeping in touch so feel free to be friendly!
