Claire was first interested in computer science and technology when she learned of all the possibilities that it possesses. As a junior in high school she has been working to further her interests through an AP Computer Science class. She quickly excelled in computer science despite only taking one introductory programming class beforehand. She also has begun participating in programming competitions, beginning with the MSOE Computer Competition in 2019. As one of the top students in her class, she hopes to pursue a career in programming through her remaining high school years and college. While she has yet to settle on what college she wants to go to, her main focus is one with a successful computer science program.
