Claudia Rodriguez is a student at Maria Regina High School in Hartsdale, New York. She enjoys figure skating and she coaches others in it as well. Being part of an all girls Catholic high school has contributed to shaping who Claudia is today. She has been exposed to the importance of community and helping the less fortunate, and she realizes that there is so much we can do to help others. She joined HUGS to help kids access and find a love for education in their lives. This gives her a chance to share her love and passion for learning with others who don’t have that passion yet. Education is so important to a child’s future and she would love to help provide kids with everything they need to be granted the gift of knowledge.
