some things about me.
Hi, I’m Clare. Some do call me CJ. No one calls me Ms. Seekins.
Before I was 12, I lived in the following places: Portland, OR; Clinton, NJ; Issaquah, WA; Nashville, TN; Bellevue, WA; and Marietta, GA. In that order. Since January 2009, I have spent varying amounts of time in the following countries and cities: Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Thailand, Prague, Czech Republic; Hong Kong, China; Portland, Oregon, USA; Atlanta, GA, USA; New York, NY, USA; Pristina, Kosovo, and Managua, Nicaragua. Not in that order.
Music and travel are two things that I love, and combining them really makes my day. Some highlights include Radiohead in Santiago, Chile; Massive Attack in Skopje, Macedonia; and Snoop Dogg in Pristina, Kosovo. I also enjoy speaking Spanish, problem solving, playing and coaching soccer, uninhibited dancing, cooking, grammar, and trying new things. I am a motivated 26 year old woman, on the lookout for people – for collaboration, conversation, ideas sharing – and opportunities – to contribute, and to grow.
I have a BA from University of Virginia, in Anthropology & Political Theory (minor in Spanish), and an MA in International Affairs (concentrations in Conflict & Security and International Development) from the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy at The New School.
I’m somehow affiliated with the following institutions: StartingBloc (LA ’12 baby), UVA’s Center for Politics, Camp Kesem UVA, The Synergos Institute, Kosovar Stability Initiative, LinkTV (specifically ViewChange.org), The Bus Project, Trick or Vote, Rose Charities International, Village Capital, Agora Partnerships, among others…
