Claudia Cartes Paredes
Claudia works in a forestry company in Biobío in Chile, where she serves as the Payroll Manager. She lives in Nacimiento, a commune in the central-southern region of Chile in the Biobío region. She is the mother of two daughters, one of whom is on the Autism Spectrum. She was motivated to join as a Global Fellow to acquire knowledge and help raise awareness of the “Autistic Community of Nacimiento” group, of which she is a part. In addition to being a founding member and treasurer of the group, she also enjoys embroidery as a hobby as it relaxes her. She has never been very good at sports, but going for walks and enjoying nature brings her tranquility and gives her time to enjoy with her daughters.
