After experiencing severe bullying in middle school, Claire became passionate to change the mindset of youth. She created a non-profit, PROJECT CLAIRE BEAR, which has aided hundreds of children in overcoming their challenges. She recognizes that low self-esteem is the root of issues facing teens and as Miss Washington Teen USA, Claire advocates to build confidence in young people.

A graduate of Eastside Catholic High School, Claire was a National Honor Society member and leader. She’s proud to be a 4-year varsity letter recipient for community service and hopes to inspire others to give back.

Blogging is a hobby of Claire’s that stemmed from her love of writing. By sharing her experiences through blogs like “Defying Stereotypes” about the misconceptions of pageantry, she strives to open people's minds.

Claire plans to obtain her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Texas Christian University and become a national news anchor for a major network morning show.
