Hi! My name is Liliana and I live in New York City. My passion for healthy living came into existence when I became vegan two years ago, a blessing that opened up new levels of awareness and empathy as well as determination to help my community access the same health benefits of a plant based diet. Growing up in a low- income neighborhood, I saw how accessible unhealthy and nutrient deficient ‘foods’ were and how this correlated with not only overweight teenagers and adults but children as well. My goal is to set up community classes for families in my neighborhood in order to place the power of nutrition into their hands.
