The Invisible Vegan
After moving to Los Angeles, Leyva found herself confused. She did not understand why veganism was stereotyped as white culture when it is a lifestyle for everyone! This motivated her to create The Invisible Vegan, to dispel the rumors that come along with African American dietary habits. The documentary additionally focuses on shutting down major stereotypes that are made about a vegan lifestyle in a non forceful manner.
“It hit me that I cannot keep waiting for someone else to give me the go to pursue my own passion. I have to use the resources at my disposal and make it happen, and that’s how you got Invisible Vegan!”
