My name is Janinna and I am from Schenectady, NY. I am an undergraduate student at SUNY Buffalo State. I’m studying to be an Art Teacher. I chose this major because I want to teach the upcoming generations more than just how to draw and paint. I want to teach them how to creatively problem solve and tap into their imagination. Our capacity for growth, especially in a classroom, is limitless. Outside of the art studios, I like to watch movies, play soccer and spend time with friends. I am very grateful to be apart of the Newman Center and excited to guide students through their college years while helping them find their own purpose.
