Background/Interests/Hobbies: Klaire is a Chinese-Vietnamese immigrant, born and raised on an island south of China.

At school, she is the co-founder of the Women’s Week Committee and outside of school, she is part of a videojournalism program at Temple University called POPPYN.

Reasons for applying for the workshop: She wants to explore the possibility of a career in photo/video journalism, as writing is not her strong suit.
