The idea of FlairNow came about when Claudia Saavedra was 16 years old. As an immigrant, coming from a low-income household and the first in her family to go to college, she had a difficult time understanding what was needed to enroll in college what steps she needed to do to receive a full-time job after college. When she found out about her immigration status in the United States during the beginning of her senior year of high school, she realized that she could not apply to many opportunities and it took hours of research to find what she did qualify for.
FlairNow started with a series of workshops created by Claudia during her lunch period in high school where she provided a step by step process to apply to college based on the hours of research she conducted.
The idea further progressed when she attended Rutgers University to the creation of an online mentoring platform with in-person workshops. Here she was able to reach 400+ students nationally and internationally. She focused on college and career mentoring as well as social-emotional building.
She met her co-founder Jose Dominguez when they spoke on a panel to help underrepresented students enroll in college and teamed up to build an application that matches individuals to opportunities based on their profile.

Currently, she is studying her Masters in Public Administration at Rutgers University. When she is not working, she loves hiking and kayaking.
