My name is Janae Johnson, and I am a junior studying Finance and Management. I am from Euclid, Ohio, which is about twenty-five minutes from downtown Cleveland.
Within the College of Business, I am the Vice President of Students of Color in Business, and I am a Student Ambassador. Outside of the college, I am actively involved in my scholarship committee, for I serve as an ambassador and a peer mentor for the Thompson Family Scholarship.
When I am not in class, or participating in an extra-circular activity, I enjoy watching Marvels movies (I’ve seen every single one of the them), crying over Grey’s Anatomy, and spending time with my friends. When I travel back home, I am either spending time with my family or volunteering at the Cleveland Food Bank.
While I love BGSU, I know college, unfortunately, is not forever. After graduation, I hope to work for a company who has high moral values, has an amazing work culture, and will provide an environment for me to incorporate my passions for numbers and data.
The College of Business is truly my second home. Due to my courses, professors, and all the resources available on campus, I was able to obtain an internship with Quicken Loans during the summer of 2018. The College of Business also helped me secure an internship with STERIS Corporation for the summer of 2019. With all of the opportunities we are provided, as cliché as it may sound, the CoB has made some of my wildest dreams come true.
