Home is where you fit in
Janica Kaneshiro has spent her whole life looking for a place to call home.
The daughter of a former military man and a kindergarten teacher, junior Janica Kaneshiro spent most of her childhood and early adulthood moving, travelling, and exploring—never settling in one place for very long.
“I chose IU because even though it’s huge, it has a small community of journalists,” said Janica, a journalism and fine arts major. “I liked that it gave me the chance to get to do a lot of things within this tight-knit community.”
On any given day, you can find her painting or molding a masterpiece in the art studio, managing social media and digital content for the campus newspaper, and eating dinner with her sorority sisters.
