Claire discovered Ultimate in 2010 when she was placed on her summer camp’s Ultimate Frisbee team instead of the dance team. It was the best second choice she ever got! The first (and only) sport she has ever played, Ultimate changed Claire’s life as she continued to play throughout summer camp, high school, college, and local summer leagues. This sport has given her the confidence to lead a group of people as a handler on the field, it has encouraged her to be physically active, and it has given her a key to an amazingly welcoming and passionate international community! Claire is also passionate about loose-leaf tea, public speaking, and live music. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Communications, Claire spent a couple months working at a farmers’ market before coming to Israel to study, and she is so excited to be at UP this summer!
