About Janae M

Janae here! I am a fun young lady that laughs at adversity! I like to sing and laugh all day long! I also enjoy drawing and helping others when needed. I can be quiet at times but once you get to know me you can see that I am really hilarious! I am from Detroit, MI it is about two hours east of Kalamazoo, MI. I attended Dearborn High School for my 10th- 12th grade year. I graduated in 2010 and was so excited to further my studies at a university.

So, I am an only child and wanted to get out as discover things on my own but with my mom's help. I began to look up universities that pertained to my major and chose my top options. I went on a campus tour to see what Western Michigan University was all about. I was so impressed and amazed with the tours and what the University offered to their students. I didn't want to look at anymore schools because I was sold on going to WMU and since that day I couldn't stop looking on WMU website. I applied to the other universities but was hoping to here from WMU and I did! I got admitted into WMU and couldn't stop smiling. This University has everything I am looking for from student organizations, good cafeteria food, great academics, perfect sized campus and career services!

College life is pretty worth while! I have created so many friendships that I know will last a lifetime. I lived on campus for my freshmen and sophomore year so that I can get an on-campus experience. I also signed up for specialty housing and got to live with students that were in the business college. I eventually moved off campus for my junior year and now I have to force myself to cook but it's okay because I call myself a mini chief. I was able to discover who I want to be and college will shape you into something great! I got involved in a few organizations that caused me to grow and open my eyes to different cultures. I am a member of Student Leadership Advisory Board in Haworth College of Business, Global Student Association, and finally I serve as Parliamentarian and Publicity Chair for the Voices of WMU Gospel Choir. I love what I do because it will mold my life for the better by the time I graduate. I will be able to give insight on life and college my kids and even my mentees.
