Journalism and Media Intern
Raise Vegan, Inc.
Overview: Raise Vegan is the premier magazine and website for vegan parents; it celebrates pregnancy, parenting, life and what that means in today’s society. Through the voices of our community contributors, buzz-worthy newcomers and seasoned editors, we offer everything parents need to stay inspired, to improve their lives, and to understand the unique challenges of parenting today. Our pages are filled with advice and real-life experiences that go beyond the ordinary and delve deeply into what’s important in our everyday environment.
