Hello, everyone! My name's Kristy, and I'm 17 years old. My one year vegetarian anniversary is on July 24 this year. I'm really glad that I stopped eating meat. One day I was out with my family at a seafood restaurant and just decided to become a vegetarian. The next day, I stopped eating meat. I'm really happy with my decision. When I was a child, I used to say that I was going to become a vegetarian all the time. My family sort of laughed at that notion (but in a nice way not a making-fun-of-me way haha), but now I've finally realized that goal.
I became a vegetarian for animal rights and the environment. I still have a lot of research to do in order to educate myself on the subject, but from what I do know, this is one of the best decisions that I've ever made for myself and for the interests of animals. Anyway, I'm going to end this post to stop myself from rambling haha. So yeah I'm really excited to join this community! Thanks for reading.
