I’m Sarina and I’m here to share my story. Being raised vegan in a non-vegan world has shaped my whole life in an incredible way. It has especially taught me critical thinking skills and to not just accept things at face value without researching them first.
The world is a very complex and nuanced place and a holistic perspective is everything to me. I strongly dislike reductionism and thinking inside the box. This includes boxes that people try to put me in, as I don’t fit neatly into almost any category or stereotype. Given the rapidly changing and incredibly polarized social and political climate of today, I believe it’s more important than ever to do our best to recognize the individuality and humanity in everyone we interact with.
I am passionate about making the world a more peaceful, just, and sustainable place for all beings, and I believe that we as individuals and communities truly can and will change things. Life is about the journey not the destination, and the combination of science, ethics, and critical thinking should be our guide!
