Senna recently turned 8 years old -- with some hesitation, as she so enjoyed 7, but she went for it anyway. She's an enthusiastically homeschooled kid, with honorary membership at a wonderful Montessori school, a home teacher she adores, and plenty of activities like art classes (on a farm) and swimming. She was born with multiple, life-threatening food allergies and asthma, which she now loves to teach others about dealing with in a positive way. Senna also adores animals, and, when she is not otherwise occupied reading about them or fundraising for them, likes to write about them (and why she doesn't eat them) on her blog, VeganKids.net.
