So, for the past few months we’ve had this awesome intern named Ilze around PETA HQ here in Norfolk, VA. I didn’t know much about her, other than that she was from Europe and had a cool accent, but as it turns out, Ilze is from Latvia (my favorite Baltic state), is a kickass activist, and is pretty amazing all around.
A huge national magazine back home got wind of her US exploits and did this great feature on her. Those of you who haven't bothered to learn Latvian yet will just have look at the pictures.
