Voyage LA Feature
"Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Rebecca Wilde.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
If there was ever a perfect candidate to go vegan, I was it. I wasn’t raised vegan but made the switch as soon as I was informed. My parent’s said that since day one, my eyes would light up whenever I saw an animal. My third word was “Bubbah” the Golden Retriever that lived on our street. At a very early age, I was bringing home injured birds and other critters to rehabilitate and -re-release. Any animal that could not be re-released became a member of the household. Our menagerie quickly grew. When I was seven, we took in three chickens. Once I put two and two together about where our food comes from, that there is no difference between my chickens and the chickens that are slaughtered for our consumption, I immediately cut chicken out of my diet and went vegetarian soon after. I went vegan the day I learned about the lifestyle. I was 15. It completely changed my life and the way I perceived the world. On one hand, I was horrified and overwhelmed at the extent of animal cruelty in our society. At the same time, I was excited to find that there wasn’t just a lifestyle, but a movement working to end animal abuse. I knew I had to be a part of it. Veganism has been a driving force in my life ever since."
