My name is Amelia. I'm a freshman at a liberal arts school in New York, and I am a researcher for the Real Food Calculator. I've been vegan since September of 2011 and vegetarian since somewhere around late 2005. I've been transitioning to a raw-food-based diet since the summer of 2012. I have been overweight and unhealthy my whole life, and have resolved to eat well in order to feel better morally, spiritually, physically, and mentally. I'm going to change the world one day, or maybe I already have.
