Clara Renault

MPPGA Student, Class of 2023

About

Clara (she/her) is Brazilian, has a bachelor’s degree in law and decided to dedicate her career to public policy because she believes that this is the best way to generate real and positive impact on the lives of those in need. Having been born and raised in a country with high levels of inequality, she saw the effects of marginalization and the consequences of this on the lives of children up close.

Clara was an intern at the Prosecutor’s Office of Underaged Infractions, where she had the opportunity to get to know the socio-educational system. Worked as an Institutional Modernization Advisor at the Penitentiary Administration Secretariat of the State of Maranhão, one of the poorest states in Brazil, having followed the implementation of measures imposed by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights within the prison units of that state, which have already been considered the most violent in Brazil.

She also had the privilege of being a volunteer teacher for children and teenagers living in the favelas.

Today, she seeks to become a more qualified professional, expanding her abilities so she can generate more effective changes in her country and in the world.

One of the topics of most interest to Clara is public policies aimed at reducing crime through education, especially for children raised in environments of extreme poverty and violence. But, more than that, Clara believes in the importance of creating well-structured and measurable public policies, something that seems obvious, but which in her country is rare and under-valued.
