Hi Everyone! My name is Claire Duffy and I am a sophomore at Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, MD. I am beyond excited to be a part of the Girl Up program!
I have been a part of GirlsUP, a partner organization with Girl Up doing similar work on a smaller scale, since I was twelve years old. I loved every second of it, so when I discovered Girl UP, I was eager to join. I have a passion for helping women and girls around the world reach their full potential and having every opportunity they deserve.
I am particularly interested in the medical field. My dream is to become an OB-GYN and operate on babies inside and outside of the womb. Many many countries do not have sustainable healthcare facilities and resources for a woman to have a healthy baby. After medical school, I would love to do my residency in a developing country working in a clinic helping women and girls with their pregnancies.
I love seeing girls reach their full potential, and cannot wait to help change the world through being a Girl Up Teen Advisor!
