The Owl

Aurora Lord

Aurora Lord, Staff writer

Aurora is a senior at Boulder High School this year. She is very passionate about social and environmental justice issues and joined The Owl as a way to find a voice for that type of activism. She is very interested in journalism as a prospective career choice. Aurora hopes to bring new perspectives to the Boulder High community and help to start difficult conversations. Aurora is also a member of NAHS, and you can find her doing various forms of art such as pottery, drawing, and painting. In her free time, you can find Aurora in a thrift store buying even more clothing to add to her overflowing closets (she has 2), working at your local coffee shop, and skateboarding (mostly falling). As a creative person, Aurora likes to get out of her comfort zone, although she is most comfortable eating green grapes.
