In a recent interview on Scout22 a one Ms. Simone Reyes dives into her history as a vegan and animal activist, her professional career as Russell Simmons' right hand gal, and how her outspoken ways led to Simmons' vegan ways.
"[Russell] used to laugh and poke fun at my office that was draped in images of the bloody slaughter houses and animals suffering in labs...Once he joined Jivamukti Yoga studio...he soon understood why I am so passionate about the plight of animals," said Reyes.
Simone goes on to discuss her vegan heroes, her activism through projects with Sea Shepherd, Stray Cat Alliance, and others; as well as how she finds strength to push through the inevitable ups and downs that come with living an activist lifestyle. It's also fun to learn that Simone's favorite vegan product is Vegenaise. How timely! Way to be, Simone. We're so glad to learn of all you do for the animals.
