Meet Janya, Minds Matter Cleveland Class of 2019! She’s a recent graduate of Euclid High School and will be attending Baldwin Wallace University in the fall. Through Minds Matter, Janya studied screenwriting and psychology at Barnard College as a high school student.

Janya on Minds Matter: “The community and the feeling of being around like-minded people are very refreshing. It’s very challenging to find people who are my age who have the same goals and morals as I do. The community at Minds Matter gave me that.”

From her mentors Jillian Kates and Hannah Watene: “We are so proud of Jan’s dedication to theater and the arts, and her determination to continue exploring her passion in college. She has kept us on our toes ever since sophomore year in Minds Matter, and we know her infectious energy and bold personality will be an asset to her at Baldwin Wallace. Her fun loving spirit balances out her strong mind and ambitious nature. Jan’s curiosity for not only the arts but also the sciences has grown over the years and we are excited for the ways she is sure to impact the world in the future.”
