Fave bands/music: Against The Current, The Summer Set, Alesso, Halsey, Zara Larsson, P!nk, Sia, CHVRCHES.

Why you went vegan: I was vegetarian for six years before finding out how the eggs and dairy industries are just as cruel. When I learnt how being vegan was healthier and better for the environment too, there was no going back!

Craziest thing you've ever done: Once I travelled by car from The Netherlands for 15 hours through the night, got home slept for three hours and went to set up a StandUP stall for a festival. I was so tired, but so many people learnt about animal rights so it was worth it #LifePriorities.

Caitlin Murphy, Vice-President

Fave bands/music: Coldplay, Adele, Regime.

Why you went vegan: I read many books by Richard Dawkins and Peter Singer and after years of thought, I realised the practice of consuming animal products was morally indefensible.

Craziest thing you've ever done: It has to be free diving in shark bay in Egypt.
