Are you a vegan teen with unsupportive family members?

So many people struggle with social disapproval as a vegan, and a lot of the time it’s from the people they are closest to – their family. This video is so unique because it’s an interview between a vegan teenager and a non-vegan mother. Brianna Jackson, the teen vegan here, decided it would be a good idea to bring her own mother into the video and ask her some questions. It brings a whole other perspective into the picture, and her mother gives tips to both teen vegans and also the parents of teen vegans. It’s an extremely insightful and helpful video full of useful tips and information on how to deal with unsupportive parents as a teenage vegan.

Listen to an inspirational vegan of over a decade shed light on the concept of compassion in today’s society.

This is a very inspirational TEDx talk given at the University of Stirling by Kerry McCarthy. Kerry has been vegan for over a decade, so she has lots of knowledge and experience with veganism. This talk differs from other talks about veganism because she doesn’t specifically tell people about reasons why they should go vegan. Instead, she focuses more on the reasons why meat eaters continue to eat meat. This talk is humorous and informative at the same time. Kerry’s speech is sure to make any non-vegans question their diet. She explains her personal path to veganism while also questioning the concept of compassion in the contemporary environment. She talks about how our brains evolved, and so much more. Both vegans and non-vegans alike can learn something from this TEDx talk.
