Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking in front of a couple of hundred people at the Vegan Life Live show in London. I also had the immense pleasure of meeting a young vegan named Domenic.
Just before I started my presentation, Domenic approached me to say hello and let me know that he always looks for me in his mum’s vegan magazines.
He told me he is a vegan because it is good for animals.
Domenic was very kind in telling me that he had been invited to a birthday party but decided instead to come to the vegan show and meet me.
Domenic asked if he could have a photo taken with me and last night his mum sent it to me (with permission to share). Here I am with the inspirational Domenic.
During the Q&A section after my talk, Domenic asked a question that I almost never get asked but secretly loved being asked. He wanted to know about my favourite food. I told him all about potato.
I am grateful to everyone for coming along to my talk and feel extra thankful for Domenic.
He made me hopeful and in this day and age, that can be a tough emotion to feel.
Thank you, Domenic. Thank you for making me feel happy and thank you for being a kind person who cares about animals.
