    If you pull out of going, you'll regret it.

    Go, have fun, make new friends and be yourself.

    No one will mind you're a vegetarian... there will probably be people there who are too which gives you a conversation starter!

    Also there will probably be other people there in the same position as them so you can make each other feel comfortable

    a) Good for you having the balls to do it, being young and all
    b) You will meet plenty of people in the same boat, and make loads of new friends
    c) See b
    d) Why would being a vegetarian be a problem?

    Stop worrying and just go and enjoy the experience!!

    You will come back and I bet you will say it was one of the best experiences of your life.....Enjoy!

    going on this will be a great experience!! i'm going on something similar, though admittedly i do know a few going. Nevertheless i will try to mix with those i don't, get to know them. This type of thing is the perfect opportunity. mix in, get involved in the conversation, and it will all be great.

    its a great chance to lose that shyness and build character!
