She comes from a Gandhian family and her grandfather was a freedom fighter for social justice in India. One of the greatest social issues of our time is speciesism.

Vegan Meathead / Daniel Austin
Daniel Austin, the Vegan Meathead, is a nationally-competitive powerlifter and member of the international vegan athletic team known as PlantBuilt. His recent book, The Way of The Vegan Meathead: Eating for Strength, teaches you how to eat vegan for maximal strength in an easy-to-digest and boldly motivational manner.
Ryuji has always been a creator in his heart. He started playing piano when he was 3, took up painting shortly afterwards and started filmmaking and photography when he was 12.
After graduating high school, he moved to California to attend film school at Chapman University. However, just before his sophomore year, he found out about the horror show that is the animal agriculture industry and chose to be vegan.
He switched his major to education, and spent the rest of his college career working and interning at schools and other educational organizations to learn how change happens in the world.
Now that he’s graduated, he creates social media content to create a vegan world. His videos have so far been viewed hundreds of thousands of times by people all around the world and visibly impacted hundreds if not thousands of people.
