She is the President of the Graduate Student Association at UNSW and is also a student influencer with the UNSW Business School.
Janel was part of the Social Entrepreneurship Practicum in Bali in early 2020, where her team worked with an ethical consumption social enterprise to create a sustainable marketing solution that strengthened the company’s environmental impact.
