People become vegan for many reasons. Health, religion, animals and of course those that do it as it is in fashion being done by some celebrities.
i do it purely for the animals. My vegan journey started 23 years ago, when I was 9 years old.
It was Easter Weekend and I still lived in Namibia. Friends of mine invited me to their farm 3 hours from the city. I was super excited to go.
We went horse riding on the day after we got there. Before we left there was the cutest goat. I petted him and went on the ride When I returned he was hanging on a hook being bled out. I was hysterical. When I asked their dad what was going on, he said it was for Sunday’s stew. My mother was called and I went home once she finally arrived from the city.
The reason I was so upset was because up until then I didn’t associate meat with living animals. I thought it came from the store. I feel this is the problem with so many kids. They just don’t know.
That was 23 years ago. I was vegetarian for 16 years and then became a full vegan. Best decision I ever made. Never looked back.
