Claudia is a fourth year at the University of Chicago studying public policy with a specialization in youth policy. She is excited to be working at CALA as Lam's executive assistant after spending the summer as an operations volunteer. Outside of CALA, Claudia is the president of UChicago Women in Law, a Teach for America campus ambassador, a research assistant in the University of Chicago's department of Comparative Human Development, and a teacher of an after school art club at an elementary school in Hyde Park. She is spending also her senior year working on her B.A. thesis, in which she hopes to study the availability of mental health services for girls in Cook County's foster care system. Claudia will be teaching in Chicago-NW Indiana with Teach for America next year, and hopes to one day attend law school.
