Congrats Claire! I love your heart for stories; the stories you tell and the story you live. TenBoom and King’s have been so blessed to have your joy and wit, your mind and heart. You are so appreciated. I pray for an Oscar-worthy, historical fiction-esque, triple threat music-book-lyrics continuation of your story. A Standing Ovation for this act. Thank you for sharing your journey with all of us.

Notes for Claire

So proud of you, Claire, and all you have accomplished. CtB will not be the same without you! May the Lord’s blessings fill your steps ahead.

Congratulations Claire! You have been such a consistent and invested part of ten Boom and you will be missed! Can wait to see where you end up!

For the photo that hopefully attached itself, I chose to throw it way back to 2017 when we first went to Black Tap. Yes, our friendship has stood the test of time, and I am so grateful that our mutual love for Disney brought us together way back when. Since then, I have not just seen our friendship grow, but I have seen you grow so much as a person. The support that you have given me these past four years, but especially this last year, is something that I will cherish forever. I cannot wait to cheer you on for many years to come because are going to do great things. And hopefully, in those many years we will learn to take more photos together, because we are no good at it.
Anyways, I love you so much, and I am so grateful for your friendship.

Congratulations, Claire! Cheers to the next adventure that awaits you!

Congratulations to my favorite study date and one of my dearest friends! I am so unbelievably proud of you- you have taught me so much about grace and friendship in just a few short years. May post-grad have endless Irish lattes and eclairs. I love you so so much <3

Claire! The love and gratitude I have in my heart for you is too large to fit into a little yearbook message. I know that whenever I have a niche interest that turns into a mild or not so mild obsession, you will be right beside me, ready to fangirl. No need to be specific lol but…. Gilmore Girls, Canadian figure skaters, period pieces, specifically Jane Austen, Ewan Mcgregor…. okay I’ll stop. I was saying something about your graduation, right? Love you bby

Claire, I’m really not sure I can write this without crying. Our haphazard, semi-quarterly coffee dates, your constant shock at how many things I just have not seen, and your patient, sincere, honest willingness to stick with me through thick and thin has borne me to this point, and now we’re on the precipice of graduation together.
Too much? Fine. Just know that someday we’re gonna take a road trip to Forks, and we will laugh and hug and probably cry, and I will have at least one mandatory existential crisis before we finally watch Pride and Prejudice together. Promise.

Claire… where do I even begin. My darling little, I am honored to have known you these past four years and I am so proud of you! From great race to many a Broadway show, I have enjoyed all of our adventures and laughs. You are one of the coolest, sweetest, most amazing people I’ve ever known and I am going to miss you like crazy when you leave NYC. I cannot wait to see how many amazing things you achieve and what all you do! You rock and I love you. Thank you for being the best little anyone could ever ask for.

Congratulations Claire! I’m so proud of you and have been so grateful to have you in my Dynasty! Looking forward to seeing where the next few years take you. Enjoy some downtime watching movies and reading books this summer.

Congrats friend! you are going to do such great things and I hope this next chapter is filled with peace and joy 🙂

Claire! congratulations! As my first roommate in New York City, penpal, and dear friend, I am so blessed to know you and your heart. I pray your next season is filled with delight, adventure, love, and lots of coffee (and marzipan!) Love you lots! SO proud of you(:

Claire – Congratulations on completing your journey at King’s! In our brief time working together, your talent and professionalism were plain to see. May God bless what’s ahead for you!

Hi Claire! BIG congratulations!! I can’t believe you are already graduating! What’s next for you? I haven’t heard. I loved reading all of the comments your friends wrote! I agree with them about the kind of lovely young lady that you are! Good luck with all of you future ventures! Much love! 💕💕💕 Carol Taylor

I’m not sure if it’s kosher for a non-King’s friend to sign this, but I don’t mind breaking the rules.
My dearest friend, you are such a blessing. I will never forget our time spent traipsing around New York, our trip to the Met, the Broadway adventures and most importantly, the kindness you’ve brought into my life. You are a quiet constant and gentle force that helps me like I’m never alone.
I am so proud of you. Much love for now and forever.

congrats sweet Claire! you are classy and kind and have the best taste in books and movies. you bring sunshine whenever you go!

What an amazing finish after the frustrating uncertainty you endured these long 14 months! I’m so proud of you for all your hard work and adjusting to the changing times so that you could finish up in New York. Love you so much!!!

Claire, I cannot imagine a more perfect complement to my theater-obsessed self to help me make it through my time at King’s. Whether it was bonding over the first peppermint milkshake of the season, trips to museums, theaters, and movies, live-texting you updates, or the hours that we can so easily spend gabbing about everything and nothing, you make each moment a little sweeter. You are living proof that if you are kind and polite, the world will be right.

Claire!!! Congratulations!
You are one of the most brilliant, kind, and funny people I have ever known. I love talking with you whether it’s on facetime, over text, or through remarkably cursed Twilight memes. I loved having discussions about classes with you and occasionally sharing mildly delusional, deadline approaching paper discussions. I love debating literature and films with you now. I love that you were and are such a fun and precious part of my life. I’m so proud of you.
