Hello! I'm Julie, from Wisconsin USA living in Colombia. It's my fourth day being vegan, I'm brand new and would greatly appreciate any advice y'all can give me! My reasons for going vegan are personal health, environmental sustainability, and animal suffering. I truly never knew all of the horrible implications that consuming animal products has on our personal/ worldwide health, until last week; I'm a trained researcher and started looking into some things, and I was absolutely appalled at what I found! That being said, I've been vegan for less that a week and so am in no position to judge/ criticize anyone else for their choices, and I'll take all the advice that I can get. I'm very excited to join this community and reduce my negative impact!
