Janine is a proud alumna of the University of California, Davis, where she earned bachelor of arts degrees in English and Sociology, with a minor in Asian American Studies. During her undergraduate years, she demonstrated her leadership abilities through her involvement in several student organizations, including serving as a student body elected senator for the Associated Students of UC Davis and earning many prestigious awards for her on-campus contributions.
