Q:

When was the last time you ate meat?

A:

In primary school, I enjoyed a Freinet education, where you mainly do research about self-chosen projects. At the age of 11, one of our projects was animal abuse, so for this subject, we went to a chickenfarm and a slaughterhouse. After these visits, I got so disgusted about the meat industry that I immediately decided to become a vegetarian. How could we let all those animals suffer that much for our appetite? Ever since, 21 years ago, I have never deliberately eaten meat anymore in my life. It's only been half a year that I became a vegan. As I can remember, my last piece of meat was a hamburger after a soccer game. Now that smell gives me the shivers :).
