Vocal Spotlight aims to highlight standout creators who are changing the world one story at a time. We're getting to know the storytellers who inspire us the most, and we can't wait for you to meet them.
Creator Spotlight: Alexis Montoya
Meet the face behind The Bronx Vegan, a movement rooted in a conscious effort to make mindful lifestyles more accessible. Alexis Montoya is a native Bronxite with Peruvian and Puerto Rican roots, and she's been creating on Vocal for a year and a half now as she navigates a city and a cultural background in which veganism is less than traditional. Alexis shares how she manages to live as a vegan without sacrificing joy or culture in a borough where the chopped cheese reigns supreme. We sat down with Alexis to get to know her, and The Bronx Vegan, a little better, and here's what she had to say.
Creator Spotlight: Samantha Bentley
Samantha Bentley: A true Renaissance woman. DJ, yoga guru, vegan food lover, award-winning former porn star, and as of a few weeks ago, a glowing new mother to a beautiful baby boy. Samantha has been a Vocal creator for three years now; she's watched our platform grow, and we've been lucky enough to watch her grow with us as she's explored everything from the sex work industry to mental health to experiencing motherhood. So, we decided to sit down with her and get to know her better—and we can't wait for you to get to know her, too.
