My Name is Jahanara. I was born and raised in Iran and I have been living in the united states for a couple of years now… I have a masters degree in Film studies and Film production and I am a freelance filmmaker….but basically I am just someone who really cares about the Animals and the environment.
I am really passionate about Animal Rights issues and I think making small changes in our daily lives like: switching makeup brands to vegan & cruelty-free can have a huge impact on the lives of so many living beings. I grew up in a household with a log of dogs. My parents loved animals and I feel like I have a special connection with them and animals in general! I want to help make a difference in the world, through my blogs or my films.
My Blog “ Vegan Needs” is for everyone who is transitioning into the vegan lifestyle or curious about the vegan lifestyle. I write and review Vegan & Cruelty Free Products and I also include some lifestyle posts along with Vegan & Low fat recipes and desserts.
When I transitioned into the vegan lifestyle, I fell off the wagon a few times and things were very confusing… I did not have a great support system and I was eating high fat vegan junk food! but it doesn’t have to be that way… I created the blog to share my experiences, yes being vegan can seem a bit intimidating at first but it is also very exciting at the same time, it is not about depriving yourself of what is out there, it is about enjoying the simple things in life.
My goal is to have a voice and make a difference in this world, on the internet it is through my blogs and in life through my encounters and the films I make.
