Hi/Shwmae! My name is Aurora (she/her) and I am excited to be your Ethical and Environmental Officer this year.
I am an international student from Norway, and I have now just started my 3rd year of my degree in the mathematics.
I first started being interested in how I could personally be more sustainable once I realised the negative effects fast fashion has on our environment, and I started thrifting and making my own clothes. This soon led me to be invited to help out on my local community's sustainable fashion day, where I showed how to upcycle clothes. I loved being a part of this, and since then I have engaged with events learning how to make more sustainable personal choices, and also how businesses can be more environmentally friendly.
I am now excited to help make Cardiff more sustainable, and also support students so that it is easier to make environmentally friendly choices.
Some of the aims I have for this year are:
More vegan option in the Taf, including more vegan alcohol options.
Bee hotels to provide refuge and safe passage for solitary native bees.
More plants in the Student's union.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to me!
