Welcome to my blog ~ “authentically vegan”. I am a college student and future social worker. Finding purpose and beauty in my simple everyday life. Vegan, runner, writer, photographer, and independent are characteristics that describe me.

I do enjoy being active, but I also treasure staying at home and watching Netflix while I cook or bake.

I started this blog in 2016 as a hobby and much to my surprise, this community has grown. I love to share my vegan experience as well as lifestyle advice. I believe that your actions and possessions should be meaningful and add value to your life. Follow my journey on “authentically vegan” for somewhat consistent content about intentional living, veganism, and photography.

What camera do you use?

~ Canon EOS Rebel SL2 and my iPhone 6S Plus. All photos are mine unless stated otherwise.

Why did you go vegan?

~ I went vegan because I made the ethical connection. Eating and using animal products is simply not worth it. Treating animals as consumer goods causes violence, destroys our planet, and is detrimental to our health.

How long have you been vegan?

~ I have been eating plant-based since January 2017. I have followed a vegan lifestyle since April/May 2017. I consider myself an ethical vegan.

Do you write sponsored posts?

~ If I write a sponsored post, it is clearly stated in the post. I only collaborate with brands and companies that I feel share a similar message. I am affiliated with iHerb and Amazon. I receive a small commission if you decide to buy products through my link.

General background info.

~ I am 23 years old. I am in my last year of undergrad and I live in the Midwest (United States).
