Born in Nicaragua, Claudia Bermudez is the daughter of Enrique Bermudez, the military commander of the Nicaraguan Contra rebels during the 1980s.

At 16, she moved back to Nicaragua to live with her father and graduated from the American-Nicaraguan High School in Managua. Her father's assasination in 1991 turned her into a prominent advocate for freedom and democracy in that country.
