Kaya Dorey, Bachelor of Tourism Management, 2013, characterizes what it means to be confident. Dorey began thinking about sustainability and changemaking as a student at CapU. She went on to found NOVEL SUPPLY CO., an apparel line manufactured in Vancouver that uses sustainable materials and local illustrators. Aiming for zero waste, the company works with a local non-profit to use fabric scraps from production in children's apparel. The company plans to launch a closed-loop business model this winter. When a customer is finished with a garment they can return it to NOVEL, which will find a new use for it. In 2017, Dorey was one of six young people worldwide to receive a Young Champion of the Earth Award from the United Nations Environment Programme.
