Why are you vegan?
Olivia: Because we don’t want to hurt other animals.
Do you like being vegan? Why?

Olivia: You know, kale, and stuff like that.
Is it ever hard to be vegan?
Olivia: No, it’s fun to be vegan. Especially for your tummy because it doesn’t have to process a bunch of junk.
What do your friends think about you being vegan?
Olivia: Um, I don’t really know how to answer that one. I haven’t asked them.
What is your favorite animal? Why?
Olivia: Ruby, the pig at Animal Place because I’ve known her since she was a baby. [Ed. note: AHHDORBS]
Do you like pink dinosaurs? Can you draw one for us? We would love it!
Olivia: Pink dinosaurs? I don’t know what pink dinosaurs are so I don’t really know if I like them. But yeah, I’ll draw one for you!
Olivia offers this final note: “If you’re not vegan, I want you to be vegan. Because it’s fun.”
