Hi, I'm Claire!
I’m happy to introduce myself to all of you as a proud part of the modzi family. This summer has been a busy one, and I’d love to share a bit about what I’ve been up to!
This May, I graduated from Franklin University Switzerland with a Masters Degree in International Management. A one-year program based in Lugano Switzerland, my studies focused on intercultural communication, global awareness, individual and social responsibility, and global leadership. After graduation, I headed home to Saint Louis, Missouri to spend a short summer with friends and family.
In June, modzi had our first ever Match Day, where we successfully reached our fundraising goal of $10,000! I hope everyone enjoyed the modzi media we shared during the event, because creating and collaborating with our team on it was a lot of fun. All of the planning and preparation for the fundraiser definitely kept me busy, and I am so grateful to all of our generous supporters for making the success of our event possible!
I just recently moved to Zurich, Switzerland where I have started a new job and a new phase of life. I am so happy to be living abroad, working not only on my professional development but my personal as well. I am continuing to learn and better my German language skills and have fallen in love with living in the mountains. Despite my job moving me half way across the world, Zambia is never far from my mind. My passion for educational rights, cognitive development, and international development allow me to work with modzi no matter the time zone I find myself in.
Looking forward to sharing some exciting stories, projects, and modzi movements!
