Vic Sjodin snapped these students reading ¿Por qué vegetariano? at Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla.
One student turned down a booklet at first but then quickly changed his mind when he looked closer and saw that it was about animals. He was horrified by the pictures and wanted to know what to do. I told him not to buy animal products and instead choose plant foods. He apologized for initially turning down the booklet and said it was because he thought I may have been handing out religious pamphlets. He pointed at the booklet and said, "This is the real bible.
A student is transfixed (above) by one of the 3,000 ¿Por qué vegetariano? booklets handed out by Alan Jiminez (below) and Vic Sjodin on the UNAM campus in Mexico City.

Yasin [above, left, with Vic Sjodin], a student from Turkey, ran up and gave me a hug and a drink he bought for us, and said he was so happy to see us speaking up for the animals, asked how to get involved, and said that he wanted to donate once he has a job. He was so full of enthusiasm it really got to me. Had a long talk with Juan and Amber [below, left] during a slow period, and both are interested in going veg. Juan had already cut out pork and beef but "loved chickens. I said with a smile, "If you love them, you don't harm or eat them. His face changed when he realized by eating chicken he was consigning far more lives to death and suffering. I applauded his cutting out some animals products, and encouraged him to try other foods. I also told him of my favorite analogs and where to find them - he was very receptive.
While leafleting Riverside City College, Vic also met Elsa, another student who is considering veganism!
While leafleting at George Brown College today, I chatted with a student who had tried being vegan for a couple of months but found it too difficult. I asked her what was the issue, and she said things like bread ingredients, cake, chocolate. I told her not to stress out too much over very small ingredients such as in bread. She hadn't thought of dark chocolate! She took a Guide and is going to give it another go!
At Glendale Community College, Vic Sjodin also met Ivana, who's been vegan for two years!

After leafleting Nicholls State in Thibodaux, LA, Vic Sjodin reports the highlight was meeting chemistry major Zemone (above), who now wants to go veg!
Despite the rain-shortened day, I had a ton of great conversations at the College of Central Florida - was actually shocked by the near-universal interest in the booklets! Three people told me they now wanted to go vegetarian, and one said he would work on going vegan. The latter's girlfriend had gone vegan to lose weight, but when that did not happen she went back to eating meat. However, he is trying to go vegan for the animals as he sees it as unnecessary to eat animal products - noting that it's cruel when alternatives exist.

Acceptance rate was 90% at the University of Connecticut's West Hartford campus. Met half a dozen vegetarians / vegans in my short time here; some of them wanted to start a group on campus. A student took a booklet and said she was sorry that I was standing in the rain.

The first student at the University of Connecticut said he got a booklet from me the day before at Eastern Connecticut State! Delaney, Amy, and I reached over 1,700 other students. An interesting and productive conversation with a woman who had gone vegan in the past but got sick. She said she really liked talking with me because I was very approachable and nonjudgemental. Another student told me he received a booklet from me last semester and went vegan! Rained all day at Three Rivers Community College. Talked with Kevin, who said he and his girlfriend were just transitioning to being vegan! One professor read the booklet, came back out of his office, and spoke for about 15 minutes. He said he wanted to experiment with vegan eating with his family for a month. He was very in tune with learning about ending animal suffering.
