Hello my name is Milly. I have been vegetarian since I was 9 years old and I'm now 17. About a year ago I decided to stop eating all dairy products, honey, eggs and I also stopped wearing wool. I am very concerned about animals and treating them with kindness and respect but I am not actually vegan because I wear leather. Not on my shoes, I would never buy it if I didn't have to, but on my figure skates. I am a competitive figure skater, I have been since I was very young, I train 20 hours a week and compete for the UK. It is my passion and the thing I love most in the whole world. But it requires I wear leather, as plastic boots are available but only for beginners, I am doing high level jumps and need more support in order not to break my ankles. I wish there was something I could do, need some help please.
