About Me

        Hi, my name is Kiara Bolger! I am 18 years old and live in California. In my free time, I enjoy volunteering at my local animal shelter and enhancing my art skills. I have been doing ceramic work for 4 years now. I fell in love with the process of pottery as well as the creative freedom involved. This unique art form requires lots of dedication as it demands patience, persistence, and passion. I have also fallen in love with oil painting. Similar to pottery, its flexibility in style and its textural component make it such a therapeutic art form. I am so lucky to teach this type of painting to kids; it is my most fulfilling practice.

 

        Outside of art, I am passionate about informing others of their impact and bringing awareness as well as solutions to global environmental issues. Ever since I was young I have felt inclined to educate myself on the problems affecting the world around me. After research, I became a vegetarian, started living sustainably, began purchasing only cruelty-free/ethically derived products, and began raising money for the homeless. This platform has helped me to do this and I hope you find this platform useful as well.

why I became vegetarian:

Animal Abuse

Sustainability

Health Benefits/Concerns 

-97% of the 10 billion animals tortured and killed each year are farm animals 

-Many brands deceive consumers with cage free and grass fed statements that meaning although cage free they are crammed into what is essentially a bigger cage with a dirt, fece filled floors surrounded by other sick occasionally dead animals

-Roughly 60 billion land animals and over a trillion marine animals
are killed (in unnecessary, abusive and extremely disturbing ways) per year, merely to satisfy human taste preference

-You can easily research local, sustainable energized, truly range/cage free and grass-fed animals on farms such as Long Dream Farm or Hearst Ranch

-Researchers at the University of Oxford found that removing meat and dairy products from your diet can reduce an individual's carbon footprint of food up to 73 percent

-The vast amount of grain feed required for meat production is a significant contributor to deforestation, habitat loss and species extinction.

-Considerably lower quantities of crops and water are required to sustain a vegan or vegetarian diet. The global switch to a vegan or vegetarian diet would be one of the most effective ways to reduce our environmental impact. Per person, a vegan diet saves 219,000 gallons of water a year.

-Both the British Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizes a vegan and vegetarian diet is suitable for every age

- Research has linked vegan diets with lower blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as lower rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

- It is unclear if plastic, cardboard packaging wrapping moldy, old animals feed is not separated before being put into the grinder to be turned into feed. Whistle blowers such as, have been fired for exposing the amount of plastic found in the food being fed to commercial farm animals. There are no clear laws that prevent businesses from this cheap ways of producing mass amounts of feed. 

- Micro plastics found in humans from eating commercial farm animals is continuing to increase which can cause issues from hormone disruption to increased cancer risk.
