You have volunteered at local animal shelters and organizations in NYC, how do you wish to stand up for animal rights?
I haven’t been involved in as many as I should be in New York. I have worked with a couple nonprofits I found through social media in the little ways that I could. Now, I am so ready to take on that role and become more involved. I want to stand up for animal rights in every way possible. I used to get so angry when I had to miss protests like working to ban horse carriages, so I would go to social media to encourage other people to go.
I recently attended the Pride March in New York and so many people showed up and supported the community. I am ready to show up and support in the same way for animals whom we claim to love so much. I support animals personally with veganism, but my next step is sticking to my word continuing my support for those that are at the forefront fighting for animal rights. I want people to join me because they really matter and they are the purest thing on this planet. They do not have the voice we do. We owe it to our planet and them to do what’s right and show compassion.
What are your 5 favorite activewear brands?
I discovered a brand from Canada on Instagram called Oraki that uses recycled plastic to create their pants. I have pair and I love them because they are cute and flattering. They have an inspirational quote on the inside too.
I haven’t really looked into more brands, but I look forward to doing so. I am not really a brand person, but if it’s a label that’s making a difference and aligns with my morals, I will support it.
