I'm not religiously raw by a long shot, I'm a fairly strict vegan (which means I don't really eat processed foods anyway) and eat around 50% raw.
I'm 22 and a student in Melbourne, Australia, I major in Marine Biology and Ecology.
I dabble in circus - mainly staff and hoop although I'm trying to get a handle on meteor.
I LOVE to cook, I spend at least an hour in the kitchen every day and at least that again researching recipes and putting my own together.
One of my main aims in the next two years is to travel (EVERYWHERE) spending time on farms and in alternative cultures, learning about local foods and lifestyles and how my ideas can fit in with theirs.
Other people's eating habits intrigue me (I studied nutrition for a bit and now I'm a bit of a nut - I'm the only person I know who gets a kick out of watching people empty their shopping baskets at shops and markets.)
Raw Foodism is such a great source of new food ideas and recipes - the more people restrict their diets, the more creative they get.
I've gotten really involved in gender politics over the last couple of years as well as in environmental movements - I dig a concept called 'ecofeminism' (I just used the word 'dig', sue me.)
I ride horses, or I used to before I moved to the city for uni. I grew up on a farm so I'm fully acquainted with all of the practices I now stand against. My parents don't love the feminism or the leftist politics, but they'll get used to it.
