Alright, well I'm 15 years old, and I live in B.C. Canada.<br><br><br><br>
I've been vegitarian for over 2 years now and for the past two months I've been only eating vegan and I am slowly (as I can afford it) replacing things I own that have animal products. I became vegitarian gradually, first just reducing the amount of meat I ate due to ethical reasons, but over time, I've completely lost any desire to consume/use anything that involves animal slaughter or exploitation.<br><br><br><br>
I live in a very small and often narrow minded town and so while I know a few vegitarians, there are no vegans living here to my knowlage. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> So, I was very excited to find veggieboards. I'm going to be needing you guys for advise and surport a lot I'm sure as I try to become 100% vegan!<br><br><br><br>
Other things about me...um...well I love the theater (dancing/acting), and music..and thats about it!

Alison,<br><br>
I feel for you on the small town. My town seems like Meat Capital, and I don't know but two or three vegetarians in real life. None of them are vegans, so like you I am grateful for VB!
