Tena Koutou, my name is SEMISI SIKEI, I am 29 years of age and living in Wellington.
I’m of Maori & Tongan Decent. My mother is Maori from a small place called Otorohanga from the Ngati Maniapoto Tribe. My father is Tongan and also from a small place called Hofoa & Masilamea.
I was born & raised up in Central Auckland. Went to Mount Albert Grammar School. I have a huge passion for performing whether it be dance, acting or musical. I have accomplished a lot of things in my 29 years but there is many more things for me to accomplish.
Becoming a vegan didnt ever cross my mind until one day, I had a good think about my health and what I wanted to change within my family.
I decided in late 2019 that in 2020, I would change the things that I eat.
Fast forward to Feb 2020, I started my journey on becoming a vegan. Being a pacific Islander and living at home was really hard to not eat what islanders love to eat. But I pulled through all the birthday feast and big church functions.
My family weren’t on board of me becoming a vegan, they called me names and said I was being silly just because I wanted to change the way I ate.
The reasons why I chose to go vegan are:
– Healthier life
– More Energy
– Better for the climate
– Felt sorry for the animals
And many many more.
I have recently started up an Instagram where I capture all the vegan meals I eat & where you can find them & just all things Vegan
You can catch me at: Poly.Vegan
Even if you have any questions don’t be shy to flick me a message
Ma te wa.
