Meat Hater's Delight

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Dylan De Gourville but my friends call me Dylan Digiorno.

One of my best friends, Ben, came up with the frozen pizza brand nickname because I used to really enjoy pizza before turning vegan. It started off as a funny comment and stayed with me. Even BC Pires thought my real name was Digiorno.

My dad wanted to call me Storm. I don’ t think I was named after Bob Dylan or any other famous Dylan. My mom just liked the name. I’m a big fan of Dylan Thomas’s poetry though. Do not go gentle into that good night impacted me the most. The poem urges people to resist death, though it's inevitable. Some people, at the end of their journey, realise that they didn't spark any real change in the world. That's not how I'd like to end up.

Over the last ten years, I’ve moved [all over] Port of Spain, but I come from South, where I lived for the first eight years of my life and formed all my happy childhood memories. It was quiet and peaceful back then. My dad's siblings and more than 20 cousins still live there, so South will always feel like home. My mom's family lives in Diego Martin and I'm exceptionally close to her parents.
