Claire Dinwiddie is a senior at St. Mary’s Dominican High School. This is her second year being a member of Dominican’s The Star newsletter staff and this is her first year being the Editor in Chief.
She has a background in musical theatre and acting which she hopes to combine with journalism to be an entertainment reporter. Claire’s passion for writing compels her to pursue a career in journalism and one of her dreams is to make it to national entertainment news such as E! or the Today Show. Claire’s biggest inspirations include her great-grandfather Hap Glaudi who was a Fox News Sports Anchor here in New Orleans.
During her first Jr. Journalism event in the spring of her junior year covering the NBA Cares All-Star Project, she had the opportunity to interview NBA players as they helped rebuild a local playground. She describes that as an eye-opening experience that helped her realize that this is what she wants to do. Claire is both excited and grateful to be a part of the Jr. Journalism team and is anxious to see what this year brings.
