I've now been vegan for a year.
I first found out about veganism from a close friend. He’d always felt uncomfortable eating meat, and one day announced that he was becoming vegan, taking off his leather belt and never using it again. When I heard about this, I started researching veganism, and learning about speciesism – the assumption of human superiority leading to the exploitation of animals. So it was simple – I went vegan.
Animals don’t have voices to protest about their treatment. It’s up to us to speak up for them.
