Hello! I’m Claire Berman, a senior hailing from Buffalo Grove, Illinois. I’m a history major and art history minor with a focus on the United States. Besides writing for Quintessential Kenyon, I’m student manager of the Greenslade Special Collections & Archives in Olin Library, an editor at The Thrill, and a member of several Student Council subcommittees. I love Captain America, Top Chef and writing footnotes. My goal in life is to one day own a Pomeranian.
