I'm a vegetarian because i believe animals should have the right to live and to be happy as we do.
I became Vegetarian at the age of 11, and I am from a very traditional Hispanic family were eating meat is just the norm. most of my family just thought it was a phase, but I'm almost 17 now. I have inspired a few people to follow the same diet or head towards it by seeing me refuse to eat meat and not eat then to do so. I was a vegan for 3 years until recently when I went traveling. I had to become vegetarian because many countries aren't ready for a vegan style yet. I planned to change back but I realized my grades had improved and many people would say it was because it was hard to be vegan at such a young age while doing sports and being active and studying hard I couldn't possibly be healthy, so I agreed with them. I hope to become vegan again after I've lived my life and traveled around the world.
