In addition to personal stories, presentations follow this copyrighted five-step outline also noted in the "About" tab:
IT COULD BE YOU - It could be you who has a disability or was born into a different race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, etc.
1) SEE - see people as people first.
2) STOP - stop negative thoughts, words, and actions.
3) START - start positive interaction.
IT COULD BE YOU - It could be you that leads by example and changes the way people treat others.
Aside from being the Founder and lead speaker, Claire is also an award-winning performer that received the Veronica Bocelli Distinguished Artist Award personally presented by Kristin Chenoweth. During speaking presentations, Claire performs a song that shows how one act of kindness can change a person's perspective. Following the performance, she reviews elements of the song with the audience to make the experience interactive and to reinforce how the "SEE. STOP. START.™" method can be applied to any situation. Integrating her vocal skills into her presentations and using music to teach a social concept resulted in receiving the 2018 National Youth Activist Award in the Inspiring Arts category. Her performance of the song that is included in the presentation can be found at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEupM58VOKY
