Today, we are delighted to introduce Tabitha Brown – an actress and vegan influencer who has amassed over 3 million followers on the social networking platform, TikTok. She is also a popular content creator on YouTube, a brand ambassador for Whole Foods Market and all things plant-based, and an extraordinary vegan cook. Buoyed by her effervescent energy, charming voice, and her soulful encouragement, TikTok fans have referred to her as “Mom” or “Auntie” and send her messages of thanks for making them feel loved and comforted.
Tabitha made the transition to a vegan diet after experiencing a lengthy period of ill-health. Fortunately, Tabitha’s daughter, Choyce, came home one day with some information that would radically change Tabitha’s life. “My daughter came home from school - teenage daughter - and she said, ‘Mom, you have got to see this documentary we watched at school called “What the Health”.’ So, we all together watched it, my husband and my daughter - and I was like, ‘Wow this is interesting!’ But the thing that got me was when they said that diseases are not hereditary; it’s that we’re eating the same thing causing the same disease.” “When I looked at everything, ‘meat’ was the common denominator. And so, I told my husband, ‘Let’s do a 30-day challenge.’ I’m going to take meat out of the diet. And the doctors couldn’t tell me what was wrong. Every test I would take, ‘Oh, it’s normal!’, but why am I still feeling sick?” To her surprise and immense relief, after nineteen months of debilitating pain and fatigue, the vegan diet was the key to restoring her health, and giving Tabitha her life back. “And so, we decided as a family, to do a 30-day vegan challenge and on day 10, my headaches went away. I was walking through my kitchen and I was like, ‘my head ain’t hurting.’ I started feeling better from that day. I started getting my energy back, I started just feeling like myself again. On day 29, I told my husband, I said, I think this is my path, I’m going vegan.”
Tabitha’s sincere faith in God, guided her from ill-health to become an internet celebrity with millions of followers and the success that she could never have imagined. It’s as our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has explained regarding Matthew 6:33 in the Holy Bible: “Once God takes charge, once God awakens within you, everything else will be taken care of. ‘Seek you first the Kingdom of God, and all the things shall be added unto you.’ (Matthew 6:33, The Holy Bible) That's what it really means.”
Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Vegan Influencer Award to Ms. Tabitha Brown, with all love and gratitude. May God forever protect and bless you.”
