SS: What made you go vegan and why?

JMG: I have always had an intuitive feeling to be vegan, however it wasn’t supported while I was growing up. People were always asking me, “ where do you get your protein?” but I didn’t know what to say at the time. When I was in college and a competitive runner I started researching about nutrition, the environment and animal rights. I never looked back. Now I know what to say and the science behind it. I recommend reading the booked, “ The China Study” – a clear correlation between eating animal products and disease.

SS: What made you go vegan and why? GP: I went vegetarian when I was 4. I was riding my bike and I saw a truck full of pigs on their way to slaughter (I live in a rural farming town, so this was a regular thing to see, but it was the first time I had ever questioned it). When my mum told me where they were going, I was absolutely horrified. I loved pigs, I didn’t want to eat them. And I didn’t after that. I never doubted my decision to no longer eat animals, but when I was around 15 (and at a very vulnerable point in my life), I started getting picked on at school for it and I didn’t really know how to stand up for myself, or defend my choices. It was mainly my schoolmates just joking around, but it started to get to me. I didn’t have any other vegetarian friends in my group, I actually didn’t even really know any other vegetarians that I could talk to about it. So I started to cave, not because I really wanted to eat meat, I didn’t even miss it and I didn’t even really like it, but I did it because I didn’t want to feel different to everybody else. Then, when I was 18, I watched Earthlings with one of my best friends who I met at uni, she was vegetarian at this time and transitioning into veganism slowly. Afterwards, I was so angry at myself that I could be so selfish for coming so far and turning back, so I immediately went vegan with no transition through vegetarianism. It was the best decision I have ever made. It’s become such a lifestyle for me, and it’s helped me make so many friends that I have so much in common with.

SS: Do you have any memories that stand out in your mind about someone saving an animal? Or relating to an animal in a unique way?
WL: I grew up on a horse farm where I had lots of amazing experiences with animals and I really learned how to interact with and respect them. For instance, we had turkeys and they acted just as smart, loving and faithful as our dogs - I couldn’t eat turkey as a result. Animals seem to sense that I have a strong respect for them and I take the time to communicate as much as possible. It’s always rewarding when I first meet an animal and I’m able to gain some sort of trust quickly. Best of all, I’m raising a vegan Jack Russell and we have an incredible bond with lots of trust and high regard for each other - it’s amazing how deep a connection goes with animals when you give them your heart!

SS: What would you say to somebody who is considering going vegan?
LMH: Nothing has brought me more peace than to know that I am not intentionally harming other living beings in my daily life. It is not a sacrifice, but an empowerment, to think of others in all you do. And hey, this is not a game of how to be perfect- it’s about each of us doing our part to lessen suffering together.
