How I Feel After a Year of SoulCycle by Didier Young

There is a small detail about me that I don’t often share with people: I have asthma. It started out when I was around seven years old and it disappeared a few years later.

The term veganism was hence born and allowed for the rise of food institutions such as PLANTA.
