Lucy: Why I had (& still have) a Nickname

Hey Everyone! I am going to keep this relatively short because I think this will make complete sense to my fellow vegan activists. I get asked a lot what my name is: “Lucy or Laura?”. So I am going to tell you why I had the nick name Lucy when my birth name was Laura […]

Breaking-up with a Company

I was hired on by two large corporations following my internship. I have spent 4 years of my life working with corporations to produce products. Giving up these career paths improved the quality of my health, the communities health, my independence, and my action towards supporting my values. This was a life-changing experience for me; […]

Unfortunately, the industry has created the idea that it is acceptable and a ‘luxury’ for consumers to wear fur. […]
