Claudine began her modeling journey at the age of 42 and she quickly realized that going grey went beyond the color of her hair, it was also a social experiment into the meaning of self-acceptance. Being drawn to counter cultures her whole life transitioning into maturity was a way to evolve above the status quo, it was an archetype role becoming a "classic model". She thought that she could have a niche and cutting edge above other women in her demographic. Being self-expressed meant she had to find her own uniqueness, as well as, the immense sense of belonging.
Claudine is also a yoga instructor and divorcee with two boys. Through single-parenting, modeling and teaching, she rediscovered what made her feel whole. She teaches her students from her own self-awareness and by using the teachings of ancient philosophy she believes everyone can align themselves with their truest self. Modeling gave her a platform to align herself to these principles and achieve her aspiration without having to accommodate how the world expected her to be.
