Scholar Spotlight: The Internationalist

Name: Claire Charamnac
Age: 24
Hometown: Singapore
School: Georgetown University '11
Major: International Politics
Why she's amazing: Founded Women LEAD, a leadership training program for girls in Nepal, and was selected as a campus leader for women at Georgetown in the Women Advancing Gender Equity fellowship program.
In her own words: "I'm a 'third-culture' kid (my parents are from France and the Philippines, I grew up in Singapore, live in the US and my work is in Nepal): not feeling an attachment to one country has made me curious to experience many different cultures and work alongside people from different countries."
