THIS IS MY STORY
My name is Megan Alpha and I am a 19 year old Vegan who has committed to the Vegan lifestyle.
I made the decision to go Vegan back in August of 2014 when my mom and I were on a family vacation in New Hampshire. We had just got done eating dinner and something weird occurred to me.
People were devouring their meals and commenting openly about how amazing the lobster tasted, the fish, the beef and for some reason I became disgusted. Literally sick to my stomach.
That night my mom and I started to research how lobsters were caught and killed which horrified me. I had no idea their entire body was made up of nerves and they could feel everything.
I thought to myself how selfish I was for killing a living being just to satisfy my taste buds.
That thought led me to research and start watching videos on the process of how chickens, cows, lambs, fish, pigs, ducks, buffalo, calves and the egg industry made it to our dinner plates.
I was horrified.
I realized at that very moment I could no longer participate in such cruelty to animals.
I went VEGAN cold turkey with my mother. I will admit it did take a month or so to really educated myself on what is vegan and what is not when it comes to prepared meals and eating out.
Now being Vegan is easy for me. It’s not only about what I put in my body but what I also put on my body.
It’s not about being Vegan for me, it’s a lifestyle.
My goal and mission is to inspire and educate young and old on how to become Vegan and how to deal with the issues that arise from being Vegan. Such as what to eat when one goes out, how to deal with unsporting family members, how to respond to questions people ask about being Vegan and much much more…
I want to be a voice for our animals who don’t have a voice.
It’s my dream that one day the majority of our society will once realize that Vegan is the way to go.
It’s good for you, the environment and most of all the animals. Ultimately I want to educate as many people as I can around the world.
