Claire Hendrix: Outstanding Graduate, School of Theatre, Television, and Film

Claire Hendrix was selected as the Outstanding Graduate in the Television, Film, and New Media Program at San Diego State University. She plans to pursue a career in feature film development.

As an artist, Hendrix says that she feels a sense of responsibility to be a positive influence on the world. “My experience in the film major strengthened my understanding of cinematic storytelling and contributed to my awareness of how the stories we tell have the power to both reflect and transform our culture,” said Hendrix. “ I have a greater sense of the responsibility that artists have to be a positive influence on the world around us.”

The first in her immediate family to attend a four-year university, Hendrix came to SDSU as a transfer student. “I struggled with self-doubt and adapting to an unfamiliar environment. Dealing with these issues during my time at SDSU has given me greater confidence in my own abilities and self-determination,” said Hendrix

Hendrix credits her self-determination and persistence as contributing factors to her success in her studies. She encourages students to come to SDSU with an open mind and explore all of the opportunities that are available to them.
