My name is Yerika Soho, I was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I became Vegan about two years ago, I’ve never been happier with my decision, I’ll be vegan for life. Before that I was vegetarian for about three years. I did it gradually, I had to read a lot to know about all the animal abuse in this planet, it is alarming and extremely sad. That is the first reason I became vegan, I do not wish to contribute to the animal slavery, second I did it for the planet and third I’m having this lifestyle for my body, I want to live long enough and healthy enough so I can keep on advocate about animal suffering and animal rights.
Currently I have a home based bakery called Azucar Vegan Bakery. I cater and deliver cupcakes and sweet treats to customers and also make weekly deliveries to the first vegan/vegetarian authentic Mexican restaurant in Chicago ‘Quesadilla La Reyna del Sur’. I am also a professional model.
