At 19 years old, Claire Wineland is by far our youngest guest on Girlboss Radio, but she may be the wisest. Claire has been living with Cystic Fibrosis her entire life and is the founder of Claire's Place Foundation, which provides grants to families affected by CF, offering both emotional and financial support. Claire’s unique inspirational model for people living with this disease has led her to be a TEDx Speaker and receive multiple awards including FoxTeen Choice Awards 2015, Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, and winner of Los Angeles Business Journal’s “Small Nonprofit of the Year." On the episode, Sophia and Claire discuss Claire's positive outlook on life, starting an organization from a hospital bed, and Claire's whimsical funeral plans.
