Hello! My name is Claudia Paguay, a first year in the honorable Muse Scholar Program. I was born, raised, and currently reside in Queens, New York. I grew up heavily influenced by the many art forms that this beautiful city has to offer, especially theatre. In the spring of 2015 I had the amazing opportunity of performing with my high school in the play, The Importance of Being Earnest, at Circle in the Square Theatre. Later that same year, I was rewarded a full scholarship to train at Circle in the Square Theater School for the whole summer. My love for acting was revitalized and I hope to continue acting as I pursue a double major in political science and media studies.
