Brianna Jackson will be speaking this year
19-year-old Brianna Jackfruitson, as she calls herself, is a passionate vegan teenager and we are super excited that she has just said yes to being a speaker at this years festival. Brianna struggled for most of her teenage life with a severe eating disorder but was able to finally find happiness and health through eating well and upholding self love principles. Her new diet and lifestyle inspired her so much that she started a Youtube channel dedicated to sharing her diet, lifestyle, thoughts and experiences.
She wanted to meet like-minded people but she also hoped that it could have a positive influence on the world and herself. And it has for sure. Today she has more than 50.000 subscribers and is gaining more every day.
Brianna calls herself a proclaimed perfectionist because she spent most of her life trying to attain impossibly high standards whether that be an extremely low weight or incredibly high grades. But in truth she was searching for something different. She was searching for a way to escape the intense feelings of self loathing and guilt and because of this, she now wants to show people they don’t need to change and should love themselves in order to reach their highest potential of mental and physical health.
Besides seeing her on Youtube you can also find her on Snapchat and now also at the Fresh Food Festival in about 6 weeks. If you would like to meet this lovely and inspiring girl then all you have to do is get your ticket at http://www.freshfoodfestival.com and come for four amazing days full of fruit, sport, lectures and fun.
You will also be able to hear Doug Graham, Rosalind Graham, Chris Kendall, Tim VanOrden, FruityLou, Harriet Kjær, Petr Czech and Marina Grubic talk. On top of that a Swedish skateboader named David Krug will also be giving a talk about what it is like living a fruitarian life in Africa with elephants and hippos in your back garden. So there are lots of good reasons to join us this year and we would love it if you did either as a guest or a volunteer.
Tim VanOrden from ‘Running Raw’ is coming
American runner Tim VanOrden is an amazing speaker and it is a real treat to have him as a speaker at the Fresh Food Festival this year.
Tim began his raw food journey back in 2004 when he was depressed, tired and out of shape but luckily he had the courage to change his diet and lifestyle.
Since then he has finished an endless number of marathons, trail- and mountain running competitions, snow shoe running and even a stair climbing race up the Empire State building. He has won titles like the U.S. Masters Trail Runner of the Year and U.S. Masters Mountain Runner of the Year and easily run 110 or more kilometers a week.
Today Tim is a dedicated Youtuber with almost 30.000 followers and has many years of experience as a speaker and coach when it comes to running, diet and personal growth. At the festival Tim will be doing both talks, morning runs and a running workshop where you can learn tips and trick to improve your running skills.
