We love hearing the success stories coming out of our vegan mentor program. This one, from new vegan Wendy, about her mentor Susan, just has us so inspired! We’re so proud of all of our mentors who give their time so generously and our mentees who are taking the leap into a compassionate lifestyle. If you’d like to become a vegan mentor, or enroll in the free program as a mentee, click here to sign up!
“Going vegan was something I had wanted to do for many years. I had already made one previous failed attempt at going vegan (cold turkey) …no pun intended… and wanted to ensure a successful transition into my new lifestyle I so strongly desired. I began doing my research and joining groups to gain as much knowledge as possible, and that’s when I heard about New Leaf.
At first, it seemed too good to be true! A mentor/mentee program that would help me, in every aspect, in my journey to a better life? For free? Yep! The online process to sign up was beyond quick and easy! All I had to do was answer a few quick questions, and I had my choice of mentors to choose from!
Having the option to choose my mentor was perfect, and Susan and I hit it off immediately! She quickly assessed my goals and provided key information and resources to help me reach them! No matter my concern or obstacle, she was there to help! She genuinely cared and took an interest in my journey. Working with Susan was like having a personal and positive life coach! For free! And now… I have a friend!
The experience was forever life-changing! Taking that first step with New Leaf and meeting Susan was the best thing I could have done for myself for the animals, and for my environment!
I seriously cannot thank Susan enough! I am so much happier and healthier as a result of it! I even enjoy my food now so much more than I ever did before!”
