first of all I'd like to thank Melissa and her companions for building a project like this. I find it very inspirational and have the best wishes for it (and all of you). I'd also like to greet the veg community, because you give me lots of hope... ;)
Now to introduce myself a little bit.
I'm Alex, born in 89', currently residing in Ravne na Koroškem, Slovenia, Europe.
I've been vegan for about a year now, before that I was vegetarian for about 3-4 years. My reasons for becomnig veg were many, and mostly all of them made sense to me (and they stil do).
