I can still remember the day when I decided to be vegetarian. We were at a cover shoot for Young STAR when Donald Trump was projected to win the US Presidential elections. As an act of protest, I told myself — and a few people in the room for accountability — that I’ll go vegetarian. So the next day, I did.
It’s kind of strange and useless when you think about it. A single decision won’t make Trump (and Duterte, let’s be real here) upset to the point of resignation but it made me feel like some things are still in my control. And in my head, it was my contribution to save the world (have you seen Cowspiracy?) because the two presidents didn’t care about environmental issues.
