Meet Sarina Farb
CONSCIENTIOUS LIVING IN A COMPLICATED WORLD:
NAVIGATING LIFE AND CULTURE AS A VEGAN.
Hi I’m Sarina! Really, I’m just a human doing my best to leave the world a better place than I found it.
You could say I think with my heart and act with my head. Ever since I was a small child, I’ve been an activist. When I see or hear about an injustice – whether it’s deforestation, war, animal slaughter, or racial inequality – I feel driven to act and to educate others. I was also raised vegan in the Midwest, which taught me to think for myself and align my actions with my values.
But I know how hard it can be, especially when it comes to making sense of conflicting information, media headlines, and dubious marketing claims. This is where science, research, and critical thinking come in.
An evidenced based approach can help us figure out the truth and support us in making informed decisions and effectively drive change. However, my background in science has taught me that science alone is not inherently good or progressive and can easily take us down a harmful path without an ethical framework to guide it.
This is why I’m passionate about bringing science and ethics together for a holistic approach to veganism, environmentalism, and justice activism. And I’m so glad you are here! I want to help empower YOU, because I believe with all my heart that individuals can and will change the world.
