How did you become vegan or move towards this way of life?

I was introduced to the vegan lifestyle by my brother and some of his friends who were part of a youth movement in our community called “Ghetto Youth Uprising.” I basically learned about the importance of taking care of our health through abstinence from substance abuse and bad dietary habits.

What year did you become vegan?

What is your day job/career?

Health Consultant at Dis-Chem, writer, researcher and musician

Are there any foods you enjoy now that you wouldn’t eat or hadn’t tried before?

Avos… I had only eaten them once before and vowed never to eat them. But now I know and look forward to eating all different kinds in their seasons!

What is your favourite meal or snack?

Peanuts & raisins and fruits are some of my favorite snacks. As for main course meals, it’s hard to have favourites. I just love my food to be tasty and nutritious. I don’t like empty and bland food.
