“I love being vegan, it’s a part of me and I try to fight for the rights of animals everyday”.-Kaya

Why did you go vegan?

My dad came to me, my mom, and my brother after watching What the Health on Netflix 3 1/2 years ago and said we should all consider being vegan. We were totally on board and have been vegan ever since. Kaya has been leading the way by educating and spreading awareness everywhere she goes!

What is your fave vegan food?

Homemade pizza with homemade “mozzarella”, black olives and mushrooms.

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

“By giving them love”.-Kaya
