Clara McLinden

Interviewer & Content Creator

Clara is passionate about creating cross-cultural connections and telling stories and currently works as the Development Outreach and Communications Specialist (DOC) at USAID/Morocco. After receiving a BA in French and Francophone studies, Cultural Anthropology, and Arabic from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2011, Clara packed her bags and moved to Morocco to strengthen her fluency in French and Arabic and gain a deeper understanding of Moroccan culture. What started out as a nine month adventure has resulted in six years full of adventure and new experiences: from working on multi-million dollar international development programs to supporting the start-up of a grassroots social enterprise. Throughout these experiences, the common thread has been Clara‘s passion for using her linguistic and cultural fluencies to build bridges and move mountains.
