I am motivated to be a part of a group of thinkers, dreamers and activists committed to social justice who are unafraid to tackle overwhelming problems of global and public health and who serve as models for those around them by taking responsibility in initiating change.

Claire initiated a project to teach English to disenfranchised girls in rural China with Couleurs de Chine. She feels strongly about promoting social justice and has stood in solidarity with many by supporting teacher assistants in the US public education system, stopping tuition increases in public universities, and helping peace activists in Israel and Palestine.
