Professional Raw Vegan Dancer, Actor and Acrobat Desiree Manning

Excited to share this awesome interview with Desiree Manning, a professional raw vegan dancer, actor, and acrobatic. She has worked her entire life and career in the performing arts, and going Raw Vegan was a complete game changer for her.

After experiencing the benefits and seeing so many performers/actors struggle she is empowered to share her experience and knowledge as a raw vegan athlete and performer. Besides excelling in her arts, she wishes to grow by helping others learn how to thrive as a raw vegan throughout long days on set or rehearsal/show days.
