Claudia Roman was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia and has lived here her whole life. She is a rising senior currently at Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School. She is a dancer at Elevate Performing Arts Center and dances ballet, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary. She enjoys volunteer work such as working at a shelter and going on mission trips with her Church. Claudia also enjoys reading, baking, listening to music, hula hooping, and watching shows on Netflix (her favorite shows are The Office and Parks and Recreation). She became a member of the All Girls Stem Society after her friend Eleni Fatoutis got her involved with this wonderful program. Though Claudia is working in a program that supports STEM, in the future she would like to be an immigration lawyer instead.
