This mother-daughter interview first appeared on the Main Street Vegan blog, 2 years ago. I’d love to share it with my readers!
Isabelle is almost a teenager. A time when friends become new major influencers. Yet this vegan tween is already facing and dealing with peer pressure on her own terms. This beautiful young girl is also my daughter and today she gently tells us about what it’s like to stand up for ones ethics at the age of 12.
How did you feel when you first heard about veganism? “I was totally keen to go on board, even vegetarian wasn’t enough of a leap for me. I wanted to get all cruelty off my plate. I’ve always felt a deep compassion and connection with nature and its animals. It just didn’t feel right or fair to eat or use them.”
