How long have you been vegan? Were you born Vegan?
I was born vegetarian and became vegan when I was 2 years old.
What is your favorite animal? Why?
My favorite animals are bats because they fly, go out at night, and are vampires!
Do you have vegan friends at school?
At school, nobody else is vegan. And most kids eat the cafeteria lunch but I can’t. But, I do have a vegan friend outside of school that’s vegan. I like being at his house because when I’m there, I can eat anything because everything his mom makes is vegan. But I still always ask, “Is it vegan?” and the answer is always yes!
Why is being vegan important to you?
My parents want me to be healthy. I want to live to be 100 years old and be healthy.
What are some ways you talk to other kids about veganism?
I tell other kids that being vegan is healthy. One kid in my class told me that I should not be vegan like the rest of the class but I said, “If my parents are vegan, I’m vegan!”
What is your favorite vegan meal?
Vegan pizza of course! With mushrooms, tomatoes, olives, and carrots.
What’s your favorite vegan restaurant?

Do you have a vegan hero or role model?
My parents and a 10-year-old vegan acro athlete named @lilmonkita on Instagram. She is super buff and can do epic tricks!
What is the toughest thing about being a vegan kid?
When there is a birthday party at school and my classmates bring cupcakes, they are not vegan so I don’t get one. But, my parents try their best to bring me a vegan cupcake so I’m not left out. But sometimes, they just can’t. So, mom gave my teacher a pack of Oreos to use for “emergency treats.”
What are your hobbies?
My hobbies are getting buff, dancing, and playing video games. (Especially Fortnite!)
