Hi, I'm Chris and I'm a Youth Contact for EFFA. I'm 16 and I'm studying at Exeter College. I also work Saturdays at Seasons Health Food Shop. I’ve been vegan for over 8 years now. Before that I was vegetarian, but when I found out what happens to chickens and cows I wanted to be vegan straight away.. basically because I don’t like to think of any animals getting hurt or exploited.
