Leilani and Daylan have been vegan their whole lives. They both feel passionate about remaining vegan because they would never want to hurt animals. Leilani, who is 10 years old, says she chooses to stay vegan because in her heart she feels like a good person when she advocates for animals.
Both kids rave about their mom’s home-cooked meals, saying that she makes the best vegan lasagna and mac ’n’ cheese.
You can often find Leilani and Daylan at marches and protests with their parents. The two siblings like to lead marches and chant about going vegan. Leilani has also worked with her mom to create an animal rights group for kids in her area, called the Kids Animal Club. She thinks it’s important to let her peers know about ways they can be kind to animals. So far, the club has spoken about watching out for animals crossing the road, like ducks or turtles, and picked up trash in their local park, which helps keep animals’ natural habitat clean. In addition, these two are the only vegan kids in their school, and they think it’s really important to show others just how easy it is to be vegan.
