Actually I already tried to be a vegetarian in my childhood being 4 years old kid). I managed not to eat meet for the whole year then. Vegetarianism is not popular in Russia at all, people just don't understand that. Everybody believes here that you'll die if you wont eat meet. So my mom convinced me to start eating meet again in order not to die;-)
Couple years ago I watched a video of some animals rights protector guy explaining how all this animals exploitation works and how easy it is for every person to stop contributing to it. So I decided to commit myself to vegan since then.
Its really hard to remain a vegan here. You will find milk and eggs in almost any pastry for sure and you are gonna spend weeks and months looking for non-leather shoes, but I'm doing my best to avoid using all these livestock products as much as its possible.
I love animals really much and strongly believe they are much better then humans. We have no right to consider ourselves to be superior to them and have to respect their rights and their lives as well as we treat our owns.
I work in Japanese company in Moscow, I'm in charge for finance. I also volunteer in one of the municipal pet's shelters here for the last 2,5 years. I take care for about 30 dogs there and I love them really much. So all my Saturdays are spent there. I love music and listen to it all the time (most of the kinds and I do listen even dubstep sometimes;-)). Many times I was told that I have good sense of humour. I like to cook vegan meals and do it really not bad:). I do love to read good books and to travel as well. I've visited about 10 countries by now and I'm gonna keep travelling and visit much more in the nearest future. Travelling is one of the things that get me really exited))
As I already mentioned there are really not many vegan people where are live (there are only may be couple vegetarians in my nearest surrounding and all of them are girls:)). So I'd like to meet here some people with the same interests and beliefs as mine, who treats animals and nature with respect, to become friends or may be even something more one day;-)
