About Claudia Zapata
Claudia has a passion for politics but not in the suit and tie, climb to the top manner you might think of. She is raw, real, and ready to bring change to the office. Her journey hasn't always been her focus though. In the middle of a pandemic, Claudia developed a vocal cord illness that left her mentally struggling for her sanity. She's using her experience to bring light and awareness to everyone she meets. Claudia is also sharing her behind the scenes journey on her podcast - Running for Office.
