The Leaf

Claire Lefton
My name is Claire Singer Lefton and chances are you know one of my many relatives and/or siblings. One of my ultimate career goals is being on "Saturday Night Live". In addition to comedy, I love film and film criticism; it's like a mental exercise. I have no specific musical taste in particular, though I have a soft spot for 90s alternative rock. If you ever want a [strong] opinion on anything movies, come and ask me- I live for giving my opinion. In addition to being on the leaf I am an actor and a technician for Aves Theater, a fourth-year Aves Improv member, and the co-president of Sycamore's Gay Straight Trans Alliance.
