Elena Waldman

Elena developed an interest in animal rights in high school after she was given a copy of Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation, which encouraged her to combine her passion for writing with her hunger for animal liberation. After graduating from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, she joined PETA’s content team so that she could make a bigger impact for animals while working alongside inspiring, like-minded people. In her free time, she enjoys playing guitar, skateboarding, thrifting, and adding to her vast collection of vegan skincare and makeup products.
