SS: What made you go vegan and why?

JF: I was helping a friend prepare for a PETA demo against KFC when I went vegan. The following day I went out to the protest and witnessed the power of the people. I knew that what I was doing before that day was wrong. I’ve vegan since that day.

SS: Has it been difficult for you? If yes what was difficult and did it get easier?

JF: It hasn’t been difficult for me at all. I was already a vegetarian before making the decision to go vegan. I think it’s best to take it one step at a time.

SS: What are some animal rights related things that you participate in?

JF: Everyday I spread the word about veganism leading example, living a cruelty free life. I also participate in PETA demos every chance I get.

SS: What are your favorite animal rights organizations?

JF: My favorite animal rights organizations are PETA, of course, Farm Sanctuary, ARME, The Humane Society, just to name a few.

SS: What would you say to somebody who is considering going vegan?

JF: Do some research; find out what you’re eating, and what they’re doing to these animals and the rest will follow.

SS: Do you have any memories that stand out in your mind about someone saving an animal? Or relating to an animal in a unique way?

JF: I do have one memory that stands out in my mind. When I was younger my cousin had a Chihuahua, and at the time she was going thru a break-up. Louie, The Chihuahua, knew that something was wrong and comforted her.
