Jannika fell in love with ArtQuake’s message of leadership using art. As someone who has pursued dance all throughout her childhood, artistic expression is very close to her heart. Currently, she is pursuing a Bachelors in Political Science and French. She hopes to one day apply her passion for artistic expression through a career in education and eventually public policy. Through ArtQuake, she is excited to cultivate the creative drive within passionate youth so to empower them to make the social and environmental changes they wish to make possible in the world around them.
