My name is Noelle Schendzielos, I am 18 years old and starting an online course to become certified as a Waldorf Teacher. I am a dreamer and leader who loves to put brilliant ideas into action. Allied With Animals has been one of my favorite accomplishments thus far and it's been such an amazing experience watching the dream become reality. 


I've been vegan for about 3 years. Even before I was vegan I found a love for cooking, being vegan just made it more exciting and more of a challenge. ​I have experimented with new types of homemade vegan meats to substitute in recipes that aren't usually vegan. A couple of the recipes that I make are ones I took existing non-vegan recipes (passed about in my family) and changed them to vegan. Most of the recipes are ones I find in the many vegan cookbooks I own and find browsing the wonders and knowledge in the internet, while adding my own little flare to each ;-)
