Kia orana! Ko ROSIE PUKEITI toku ingoa.
I am a New Zealand born Cook Islander working in the early childhood sector as a Head Teacher for infants. I became vegan in April, 2017 initially for health reasons. However, as I researched more on the vegan movement, I became more aware of the other two key benefits of veganism, which are of course for the animals and the environment. The ethics of being vegan, of not wanting to contribute to a cruel industry is now my main reason for continuing my vegan journey. I have a twelve year old son who shares in my belief and conviction of the vegan lifestyle.
