QUESTION: How long have you been vegan, and what was the motivation behind your decision to go vegan?

ANSWER: I have been vegetarian for ten years, vegan the last two. I went vegetarian because I was offered a slaughtered goat at a celebration in Kenya and refused to eat meat after that occasion. I went vegan for my health two years ago. I have learned enough about factory farming and food production to now remain vegan for all animals.


QUESTION: What aspect of The Seed are you most looking forward to?

ANSWER: I’m excited to interact with the attendees – to learn about what attracted them to The Seed experience. I believe The Seed has the potential to draw in people who may never have considered veganism.
