Teen Wins PETA Award for Kindness to Animals
If it weren’t for the photos that greet you when you visit her website, you’d never guess that Isle of Wight resident Jazzy Heath is only 15 years old.
Showing resolve beyond her years, Jazzy has made a commitment to helping animals. Using digital media, she’s enlightening people she has never even met about the benefits of going vegan. For her tireless efforts in reaching out to other young people around the world to win justice for animals, Jazzy – a vegan since birth – has won a Compassionate Teen Award from PETA.
Jazzy has posted videos on her website about animal-related topics, including veganism, experimentation, leather and fur. In one video, Jazzy even tries to makes sense of some people’s reluctance to face unpleasant facts – such as her friend who couldn’t accept that pork comes from pigs – simply because those facts make them uncomfortable.
Her actions are inspiring other teens to choose a cruelty-free lifestyle. We’re delighted to recognise her for her leadership and kindness. Well earned, Jazzy!
