When I was born, my parents had just got a Labrador dog. He was by my side every day until I was eight. When he passed away, it was one of my most devastating days until that point. I had cats, I had dogs. I’ve always been a lover of animals. Then, when I was in my late teens, when I started to hear about people killing animals to use their fur for clothes… I never bought anything that had real fur on it. A bit later, I started to see the real impact that we’re having. Social media has made it a lot more visible. I took action to go vegan and not contribute to that industry any more. On the plus side, for me personally, I just felt a million times better, so I wish I’d done it before. But just ethically, I feel great every day that I’m not contributing to that industry and want to use my platform for people that are listening and watching to highlight it. Bit by bit, even if it’s one person a year, that’s already making a change. Now I’m constantly looking for “What is your purpose? What can you give back? How can you help make a change?” We are not here for nothing.
