A note from Izzy Pezzulo, a 2014 VRG Scholarship winner:

I’ll never forget how the VRG Scholarship continues to change my life.
I’m now attending the University of Richmond, where I’m currently rocking
the vegan lifestyle and looking to promote it by baking my peers vegan
cookies, and potentially starting a vegetarian society on campus.
Without VRG, all of this might not have been possible, and I am truly
grateful. Over the holiday I’ve had time to reflect on the parts of my
life that are so influential to who I am today. I owe VRG a huge thanks
for making me successful in my switch to veganism, and now my education
as well.
