Noree Victoria, Baltimore, Maryland native, has been active in the creative arts her entire life. Starting out writing imaginative short stories and plays, she completed her first bound children’s book at the age of 7. Loving the arts and academics, during her middle school years, she used creative and intellectual outlets to escape her sometimes-challenging upbringing in Baltimore, opting to spend summers in special programs on college campuses studying drama, creative writing, and painting with the help of government subsidized grants and academic scholarships. At the age of 16, once again longing for a life beyond the borders of her home city, she petitioned her school board on her own and successfully won their approval to bypass her senior year, and go directly on to college, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing and Biology, and subsequently a Master’s Degree in Information Technology. Noree completed her Master’s program with a 4.0 GPA. However, coming from an entertainment family with modest means-- kin to the late jazz musician Eubie Blake, and sister to Emmy nominated actress Penny Jerald-- the lure of acting proved way too overpowering for her to neglect. After completion of her academic studies, she stepped out on faith to pursue her creative passions in the performing arts full time, gaining recognition by winning the Best Actress award at AMTC’s Shine, a nation-wide talent competition drawing over 2000 contestants each year. After being discovered at AMTC, Noree was contacted by the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts and offered a scholarship to study under the direction of some of the most esteemed instructors in the business, taking on Scene Study, Advanced Film Combat, Voice-over, Michael Chekhov technique and Shakespeare Presentation.

We have been running a bunch of vegan shows, both because I have a new book coming out, VIM VIGOR VITALITY VEGAN! and because being vegan and vegetarian fully or partially benefits health and wellness for people and planet. Today MMM presents Victoria Moran, noted vegan authority and author.
A good part of planetary devastation and Earth changes are actually fueled by eating meat and using non 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper for everything. The amount of land, water and food required to raise cows, whether for meat or dairy, is overwhelming, causes methane, and is counter productive to a healthy planet.
Tonight we welcome Victoria Moran, Victoria (www.mainstreetvegan.net) is a vegan of three decades and an obesity survivor. Listed by VegNews magazine among the Top 10 Living Vegetarian author, Victoria has written twelve books, including Main Street Vegan, Creating a Charmed Life, and new this month, The Good Karma Diet. Her fans range from Michael Moore to Ellen Degeneres, and she was featured twice on Oprah. Moran hosts of the weekly Main Street Vegan podcast; directs Main Street Vegan Academy, an in-person program in NYC to train vegan lifestyle coaches.
Get ready to learn much, open your consciousness, change your life for the better, and have a super great time!
