Her interests are in all things Science and Math, especially relating to Outer Space and new discoveries.”

Janyah sings in the Chicago Children’s Choir and plays Volleyball for her school. She has addressed the Chicago Board of Education advocating Public Montessori Programs and hopes to bring STEM Classes to her own school.
