Claire is a recent Communications and Spanish graduate of Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Going into college, she was already interested in labor rights and environmental sustainability. Her passion for fair trade started when she went to an information session for a class about fair trade and an accompanying study tour to Costa Rica. Seeing the intersection of labor rights and sustainability in fair trade left her wanting to learn more about the movement. Since then she has joined her school’s Fair Trade Initiative, helped organize and market campus events, attended two Fair Trade Campaigns National Conferences, helped start a student-driven fair trade coffee company at her university, and yes, traveled to Costa Rica on the fair trade study tour that initially sparked her interest. She enjoys digital content creation and looks to focus on ethical consumerism and conscious storytelling in her future.
