This Young Woman is Helping Struggling Teens by Truly Seeing Them and Caring

At age 5, Claudia emigrated with her family from Chile to the United States, but the experience was hardly the American Dream. She lost her sister to a drug overdose and experienced PTSD from living with domestic violence. Instead of breaking her, it broke her open. Now she works to brighten the future for those in her Newark, NJ high school facing similar struggles.
