Hi my name is Claire and I’m 13 years old. I am an only child. Sometimes I wish I had a sibling as it can be very lonely for me even though I am close to my parents and I have lots of friends.
It would be fun to have a sister to talk to about the tough stuff. I love to have fun with my friends and hang out at tons of great local places around Calgary.
The newsroom helps me keep up on all of the awesome things going on in my city and to share with all of you stories that are important to girls and that bring awareness to girl issues.
My parents are really supportive and both want the best for me, but don’t always agree on what that looks like. My mom grew up here in Calgary and my dad is from China. My dad is well let’s say a bit more traditional than my mom and that can be hard as he has different ideas on what a girl can do.
