Our guest today is an actor, dancer, film-maker and director, activist, and so much more. Tonya Kay is a brilliant and vibrant artist whose rebel personality and compassion easily shines through her work. Today on the podcast we get to sit down with Tonya to learn what makes her tick. When dancing burlesque, acting in popular films or talking about her raw vegan lifestyle, it is clear to see that Tonya is a dedicated and authentic leader. Today we have the honor of discussing her roots and learning about her passion for the arts at a young age. We also talk about what drove a girl from a small town, who had an experience in her family’s slaughterhouse, to living a vegan lifestyle and spreading the message.
