Rama lived in Chennai India until the age of 10 when she emigrated to the UK with her family. She graduated from the University of Oxford, and also has a PhD from the University of Wales. She then moved to the US with her spouse, and has lived there ever since. Rama became a vegan after reading “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer, set as college reading for her son. She then began to work to promote veganism, and currently works as a vegan educator where she presents to thousands of students. She runs many local vegan events in northern Indiana, and is a Pollination Project grantee for this work.
Rama joined us to speak about her contribution to a new book recently released, titled “Veganism in an Oppressive World: A Vegans of Colour Community Project”. This book was conceptualised and edited by Julia Feliz Brueck and incorporates the views and advocacy advice of Vegans of Colour from around the world, in order to ensure that our movement is as effective as it can be.
