In 2018, she spent time studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. One day Kivior plans to return and teach English as a volunteer. Post-graduation, Kivior plans to pursue a career in journalism or lobbying, which coincides with her passions of public policy and activism.

“Claire is a bright young lady. She didn’t hesitate to jump in headfirst on her first day with us,” Aila Boyd, editor of The Herald, said. “She brings with her a unique perspective and a passion for storytelling.”
