making veganism admirable in a high school

i'm one of the only veg*ns in my high school. people always ask about it out of curiosity, and a lot of the time it's more like "why the heck would you do that?!". and when i try to support veganism, no one cares. because face it, people are narrowminded and don't care about what they put into themselves. i don't even want to convert anyone to veganism (though that would be amazing) but i just want to raise awareness and have people realize how great veganism is and how horrible eating animals is! any tips on how to do this and what to discuss/point out? i hate closemindedness

I went on camp and got veggie lassagne for dinner. Another friend of mine put herself down as veggie in the hope that the food would be better (it wasn't, but I don't mind camp food while she objects vehemently to it). So, she gave her portion to me, and one of my other friends asked if she could try it. She did, and liked it, so we split it
. I found that quite heartening. People seem to be willing to listen at my school, and accept veggie food as actual food and not necessarially disgusting. And some of the nicest people are commonly known as veggie, including some of the nicest teachers that you can't help but like.

I was also very happy when a meat eater said 'I didn't know you were vegetarian!'. When I said, 'I'm getting there,' her immediate reaction was: 'That's awesum!'

And I got my food early and got to cut in the line

Probabally the best way is to be seen enjoying your food and not treating it as a big chore. Then, people can see how happy it can make others, and will be more open to it. Don't force beliefs onto them, because that's when people will reject you.
