I'm Nooran Ostadeian. I've been a real estate agent in Edmonton since 2007. To me, veganism is about ethics, integrity, and following a path to better our community and society as a whole. This leads me in the right direction to live an honest and fulfilling life. The values that drive me to be vegan are the same values that I bring to my professional life.
I became vegan in 2016 after months of research and coming to my own conclusions about this significant life change. My dog Pico, who passed away in 2019, got me thinking about how amazing animals are. I learned that they have feelings like us. I gradually learned more about the meat and dairy industries and everything else - how harmful they are to the environment, how much animals suffer when they are raised on farms and I have decided to stop consuming animal products. It was a challenging time, but I've never looked back since.
