Small milestones can signify great success when it comes to animal rights.
Jaylene Musgrave knows this, so is using her rock star friends to help in her
fight for animal rights.
The Mudjimba local had noticed a lack of animal
rights activities on the Sunshine Coast, so she formed Vegan Warriors: a group
of vegans, who fight against animal cruelty.
If her years as personal
assistant to rock Aussie gods Jimmy Barnes and the Divinyls taught Jaylene
anything, it was that she could make a difference - especially with the help of
her superstar friends - and perhaps improve awareness of vegans.
acknowledges: “People are a little bit scared of the whole vegan thing.”
Jaylene has loved animals her whole life, but it wasn't until she was eight that
she stopped eating meat.
“Like most families, meat was on our table for
breakfast, lunch and dinner,” she said.
“I knew I had to do something
to help animals,” she said. “I thought I've got all these wonderful people that
I know in the (music) industry, I may as well try and utilise them and see what
I can do.
“Celebrity vegans are great ambassadors for animals because
they promote animal rights issues whenever they can.
“I've always been
involved in animal rights. When it comes to animal cruelty, there is no excuse.”
