Seba Johnson is a former Olympic downhill skier, animal activist and vegan since birth.
At the age of 14 she became the youngest Alpine skier at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada. She was also the first black female to take part in Olympic skiing.
She qualified for the 1992 Winter Olympic Games in Albertville, France, competing in the Giant Slalom and Slalom ski events. She then protested and didn’t take part in the following Winter Olympic Games in 1994 held in Lillehammer, Norway due to the fact that Norway lifted their moratorium and resumed their practice of commercial hunting for minke whale. She was once disqualified from a World Cup ski race because she refused to wear a ski suit that had a patch of leather sewn into it.
She recommends a whole foods plant-based diet including raw dishes – and anything with kale. Freshly juiced ALL greens, or organic carrot, beets, parsley, and ginger root juices. Organic kale, frozen blueberry, frozen banana, maca powder, ginger root, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and almond milk Smoothies.
She was brought up by her mother as a vegan and is a passionate advocate for animals. She promotes veganism via social networking and in every opportunity where someone is willing to listen. She visits schools and youth camps to speak about veganism and respecting animals. In any national or international radio, television, magazine, or newspaper interview she mentions her ethical vegan upbringing and the myriad of benefits living vegan has – by simply eating compassionately and not contributing to the suffering of animals.
