I became vegan after reading a handful of books on the subject of eating animal products and animals. One so aptly named as Eating Animals.

I had been vegetarian for about two months, but my eyes were opened and I realized that just as much abuse of life and environmental damage was coming out of the dairy and egg industries. I could no longer justify eating anything from an animal, and after being vegan for about a week, those who were non-vegan just seemed infinitely ignorant or downright strange to me.

Everyone in my family (I'm still in high school) eats meat, but they all support me somewhat. Luckily, my best friend is vegan as well.

I'm looking forward to learning about more free-thinkers like myself!
