A Voice for Change

As a dancer, Clara does not get to use her voice very often. However, Clara developed a love for public speaking and advocacy in high school. In her teenage years, Clara was given opportunities to write speeches and speak out on issues important to her. From the Veterans of Foreign Wars Voice of Democracy Scholarship Program to being a UNICEF Kid Power All-Star, Clara is proud of the impact her voice can make. 

Clara is happy to continue her advocacy and public speaking skills through volunteer opportunities and as a career.
