Kat Theo is the author of the children's book Layla Escapes the Zoo: An Adventurous Slow Loris Dreams Big! Kat moved to Asia about two years ago as an ESL kindergarten teacher, and was inspired by the different conversations she had with her students about her vegan diet, so she decided to create a children's picture book.
"I am a huge fan of the vegan movement and even more in the black vegan movement. I cannot tell you how many times I've been to a vegan event (like most of us brothers and sisters) and I am the ONLY sister in the room. That really got me to start thinking about why veganism is not really a thing in our community. I remember finding your page and falling in love! It's all about redefining what it means to be a vegan. I knew I wasn't alone but I was shocked by how many of us are out there!"
