How long have you been VUWSA President for?

In my heart, years, but IRL like 3 months. Best 3 months of my life though!

What’s the best part of your job?

Being able to see all the students line up for the VUWSA tacos was a great feeling. I’m passionate about students’ rights to free tacos – which is currently being threatened by the government. Students need a strong voice to ensure the continued provision of tacos.

10 birds fitted with miniature backpacks carrying pollution sensors and GPS trackers are flying around London, tweeting their data to measure air pollution. Often discriminated against and labelled ‘sky rats’, these pigeons are helping to fight smog and deserve a medal.
