How I Realised That Being a ‘Meat-Eating Animal Lover’ was an Oxymoron and Went Vegan

I was five years old when my teacher told me it was wrong to eat McDonald’s. I can’t remember what she said word for word, but it was enough for me to go home and tell my mother I didn’t want to eat animals anymore. Knowing what an effort it was to get me to […]
