Early life and education
Janet spent her entire childhood in Florida with her father and mother, but she doesn’t usually talk about them as she respects their privacy as much as she respects her own – she hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, which is why she is considered to be an only child.
Janet grew up wanting to become a model, but wasn’t imagining that she was going to become a fitness model one day.

Janet’s modelling career

She enjoys being at the beach, and could spend an entire day under the sun with a cocktail in her hand – she doesn’t usually drink alcohol, but would make an exception for chilling at the beach. She admitted to be addicted to the attention she gets on the internet, which is one of the things she doesn’t like about herself, and would prefer to change.
