Janae Moore

April 2019
Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Class of 2019

Throughout her time here at UIUC Janae has shown to be a team leader and a role model. Janae is NSBE’s Programs Co-Chair and plans social events which promote and help build a sense of community. During E-Week, she led her team to victory through encouraging them perform competitively and to rely on one another. Janae is also a part of Illini 4000, in which is she is conditioning herself to bike 4,748 miles, from New York to San Francisco, and working towards raising $4,000 for cancer research and patient support services. Janae is a huge fan of the performing arts so it’s not a big surprise that her favorite place on campus is the Krannert Center for Performing Arts. Her favorite MEP event has been the fall SOS retreats because it has given her the opportunity to network with alumni, which had lead to job interviews and scholarship opportunities.
