Activist Aspirations Enthusiastic
Political Leaning Liberal
Religions Agnostic but spiritual  
Eating Habits vegan and proud!  
Wild Fact About Me I was raised by two complete conservative Republican Cathlics who eat meat at every meal, and I turned into a liberal, Democrat vegan that does yoga.
My Philosophy I believe that if we are on this earth, we should make positive change for future generations. Also, what Opra said, "Always take a stand for yourself, your values. You're defined by what you stand for." Finally, I try to remember, if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
What Gives Me Hope The other young people today who see problems in the world and strive to fix them.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would start working on ways to help animals and the environment. In helping animals, I would offer vegetarians and vegans tax breaks since they help animals and the environment, outlaw animal testing, set strict laws about what is humane in raising and slaughtering farm animals, tax meat and ranches like cigarettes and tobacco farms are taxed, offer free nutrition and vegetarian cooking classes, make animal abuse a felony, turn all animal shelters into no kill shelters, require liscences for breeding animals, offer free spaying and neutering to animals of lower class families, crack down on dog fighting, set strict animal welfare laws for rodeos and circuses, and make it illegal to chain your dog in the backyard all day. To help the environment, I would make it illegal for car dealerships to sell anything but hyrbids or eletric cars (with the exception of used cars), teach the pubic on how going vegetarian helps the environment, require all farms and businesses, to go organic, offer tax breaks to people with solar panels or windmills, fill homeless shelters and schools with organic, all natural food, and make sure all cities and towns have adequate pubic transportation while lowering the cost.
What/who changed my life and why My boyfriend of two years, Billy, changed my life because I met him at the hardest time in my life and he helped me through it. I had been abused by father and he went to jail after a particularly bad night. This happened about a month after I met my boyfriend and everything was horrible but he supported me and sent me a dozen roses.

Role Models  
Quotation "Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative-and fatal-health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they cold eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kils so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "Peace on Earth." -Preface from Old MacDonald's Factory Farm by David Coates
