Hi, I give you s lot of credit for making such a mature decision. I didn't become a veg until i
was 18 but i wish i had done it sooner. I am 25 and I used to teach high school. To me
education is power. Educate youself, there are so many good websites and books out there.
Don't be pushy with the info but if someone is asking or accusing you then you will have the
facts. Many vegans are militant and that's not very effective. Be peaceful, loving and smart
and people will see that your heart is in the right place and you aren't trying to hurt yourself.
Just tey to eat as healthy as possible. As you get older and all of your friends are gaining
weight and feeling tired they will look at you and realize they should've gone veg too.
