Janet is passionate about leading an intellectual, creative, service-based life. She loves art, history, language, stories, service work, and travel. She works for Native American rights, Women's rights, and equality for all people. Janet advocates for the use of art and education to create positive social change. Her goals for the year are to become a member of her community, to make lifelong friends, learn from a culture, languages, religions, and a way of life different than her own, and to be welcoming and open to every new experience that comes her way. She hopes also to have a positive and joyful impact on the community and family she will join. Janet hopes to return changed and inspired spiritually, creatively, and intellectually.
