How did you discover Compassionate Action for Animals and what made you decide to get involved?

I discovered Compassionate Action for Animals at a club fair held on the University of Minnesota campus. I had gone vegetarian at nine and became vegan in my later teens, and I had always dreamed of finding a community that held my same values. Especially having come from south Texas, where there was very little vegan presence, I was ecstatic to find that there was an already-established group on campus that was looking for new members.

What do you love most about volunteering? 

I love seeing my hard work pay off. Having been an animal advocate for so long, I am incredibly excited to be able to finally put in work that I see impacts people and animals directly in my community. Having a space to actively work towards a goal is amazing and I feel very proud of the work I’ve done so far and will continue to do.

When you are not helping out with CAA stuff, what do you like to do? 

 I love to read, cook ( vegan food of course! ), listen to podcasts, and watch horror movies.

What inspires you to eat plant-based and take action for animals?

I value animal life just as much as human life. I wouldn’t want any of my friends or family to suffer, and animals don’t want their friends and family to suffer. It’s as simple as that.
