Season 44 survivor Claire Rafson has been an Eniac Ventures partner since October 2021.
Claire graduated from Dartmouth College with a BA in History and Native American Studies. During her tenure at Dartmouth, she was a member of the “SHEBA Dance Team (Director), Girls Interdisciplinary Council (DE&l Vice President), Academic Advisor, Sigma Delta Sorority (Executive) , the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, and the Dartmouth Outing Club,” according to her LinkedIn page.
She is currently working as an investor at Eniac Ventures. According to her LinkedIn page, her position also requires her to work and “invest in early-stage potential companies.” Speaking privately with Parade ahead of her competitive series debut, Claire revealed that joining Survivor is one of her life goals. She went on to say that she had been waiting since she was 4 years old, about 21 years old and always wanted to give it a try, she finally found the confidence to apply this year.
Claire described her best time during the last contest as follows:
“Because there are so many examples, I believe this is a bit too much. The Cook Islands are probably my all-time great moments. I admire the superiority of the Aitu quartet. And my best moments are whenever they send Candice to Exile Island.”
Claire revealed an event that helped her prepare for the competition:
“I believe it’s difficult, so I’ll compromise on this. I believe that simply being is a living experience for me. (Laughs.) So by comparison, I am a 5’2” tall gay African Jew who is as loud as hell. So the whole of my existence, I am the odd one out and stand out like a sore thumb everywhere I go.
