The Vegetarian Resource Group Blog

Dear Vegetarian Resource Group,

I had an amazing experience joining the University of Pennsylvania community over the past few months. The people I have met during the past semester have changed my outlook and enriched my life. All the activities, resources, and opportunities on campus overwhelmed me in the beginning, but eventually I found my stride.

I used the past semester to explore the options available to me, and what I truly desired. Attending several entrepreneurship events led me to researching the possibilities of starting a business or nonprofit related to veganism, or under the broader umbrella of reducing the total amount of suffering in the world. Realizing that veganism is a cause that I would dedicate my life to, and that I could use my passion and skills to help reduce the total amount of suffering in the world, changed how I see my future.

I would like to thank The Vegetarian Resource Group and all the donors who made the generous scholarship possible. Your support eases the financial burden of college on my family and me. Most of all, it tells me that no matter how tough it gets, there are people out there who believe in me and support me in any way they can. Thank you.

-Aaditi Tamhankar
