I'm Tai Grace and I'm 16 years old. I'm a Black Vegan!
I've been raised in a very health conscious household my whole life so I really thought there was nothing wrong with me consuming animal products. That all changed for me a few months ago starting with a project in my English 3 class called "Food Rules." To sum it all up, we read the The Jungle by Upton Sinclair and watched a film called Food Inc. These two really allowed me to see the horrors of the food industry and how they brainwash us into eating these egregious things.
I thank my English teacher for this lesson and I couldn't have done it without her. In all honesty, I started this journey for health reasons but now it has spread for me morally, spiritually, and logically. I have more compassion in my heart than I have ever had. I feel awakened spiritually and I feel the need to fight for something now. I'm excited to see where this new branch of activism in my life takes me and I will do my best to spread the message of health, love, and compassion as I grow into a young adult. Black Vegans Rock!
