This is the first time that I have registered in a veg forum and, obviously, I don't meet anyone. I think that there are many other new members in the same situation, so I decided to create a topic where we talk a little more about us. Feel free to say if that's not a good idea or if a topic like this alredy exists.<br><br><br><br>
1. Where are you from?<br><br>
2. How old are you?<br><br>
3. Why have you become vegetarian/vegan?<br><br>
4. Extra informations<br><br><br><br>
Anyway I begin answering:<br><br><br><br>
1. Porto Alegre, Brazil.<br><br>
2. 17 years old.<br><br>
3. For ethical reasons (in my introduction post I wrote philosophical but I think that this world fits better).<br><br>
4. English isn't my mother language, so I often write wrong words or sentences that sound strange, if this happens please correct me. I study computer science at university and don't have pets. I love meeting new friends therefore if anyone wants add me on msn or even ask me something don't hesitate.

1. South Carolina<br><br>
2. Sixteen, but I look about 3 years younger -.-<br><br>
3. My dad likes to subscribe to random magazines, and last year he started to order veg times, and I became veg just as a thing to do. But then I began to do research and really think about the world around us, and now ARs and the enviroment have become true passions of mine.<br><br>
4. I love writing and drawing (of the psuedo-manga variety) and I'd have to say that dogs and pigs are my favorite animals. ^^
