My journey to veganism began when I was a sophomore in high school. My older sister, Tanya, was interested in animal rights and held an animal rights week at our high school in 1995. She became a vegetarian, and I soon followed. For a long time before that, I felt a connection to animals and believed it was wrong to eat creatures with personalities, thoughts, and the ability to show love and affection.
