Turner, 15, serving free plant-based foods to the community to promote animal welfare.

It was lunch time and I sat alone at my table. My passion for animal rights put me on the outs with the friends I once had. The Vice Principal walked over to me and sat himself down. He asked what I was passionate about as he sought to get me more involved in classes I would enjoy and extracurricular clubs that sparked my interest. I told him I liked animals. “Perfect, I know just the club,” he exclaimed.
