I was a vegetarian briefly before going vegan in 1994. Once I became aware of the harsh realities of the dairy industry too, I became a vegan instantly.
Presenting/ acting experience / other interesting stuff you do:

I enjoy whole natural foods. I don’t eat anything processed. I love salads and vegetables with avocado, tempeh and whole grains like brown rice, quinoa or millet.
Favourite way to chill out:
Reading in Barnes & Noble or Borders book store. Seeing a movie.
Who inspires you and why:
I am inspired by Madonna. She is the greatest female artist. I admire by her incredible strength, her multitude of talent. I am inspired by River Phoenix. He was such a beautiful soul. I admired his dedication to veganism and animal rights which taught me so much and he was so incredibly talented.
Others that inspire me are fellow vegans and animal rights activists for their amazing pursuit to inspire and educate others.
