Allie Claman grew up in Los Angeles. Her love of the Spanish language inspired her to study International Relations, Spanish, and Peace and Justice Studies at Tufts University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2019. Following a semester in Madrid, her Senior Honors Thesis investigated collective memory and its connection to strong democratic institutions in Spain and Latin America. Her Jewish heritage, with its strong tradition of storytelling, encourages her to continue studying collective memory and reconciliation to seek out stories of injustice and prevent future atrocities. Her civic engagement projects have included leading a Girl Scout troop, phone banking for political campaigns, and implementing digital libraries in Ecuador. Allie currently works in international fellowship programming, and she has previous experience in voter advocacy, social media, and government. Allie hopes to continue advancing human rights throughout her life through a career in Foreign or Civil service.
