Ashlyn is a sweet, shy little girl, but very outspoken when it comes to saving animals and even tells her mommy to speak up!

Why did you go vegan?

Technically, Ashlyn was born vegan, but when asked, she says, "I went vegan because it is nice to animals and it is gross to eat their bodies and stuff that comes out of them."

What is your fave vegan food?

Tofu and rice, pad thai, masala burgers

What is the #1 way you like to help animals?

I tell people it is not nice to hurt animals when I see them eating meat or dairy.
