Claire Liang lives in Cary, North Carolina, although she has previously lived in Massachusetts. She is a sophomore at Raleigh Charter High School.
Claire has always enjoyed a multitude of different activities, including reading, Science Olympiad, volunteering, traveling, and writing, but is currently trying her hand at newer hobbies of photography, running, baking, and gardening.
Claire grew up watching documentaries, many of which portrayed the disastrous and too often ignored effects of climate change. Thus, since childhood she has been greatly interested in the protection of Earth. Climate change matters most to her because of its capacity to destroy the lives of everyone, from penguins to humans, in a matter of decades.
