Mrs. NEW JERSEY
Janna Sheiman is a practicing attorney and works as an advocate on behalf of individuals with disabilities to protect their rights. She has her Juris Doctor from New York Law School and has been practicing law for over 14 years across New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Her work focuses on helping others use their voice, protecting their rights to employment services and to help them be active in their community. She is currently finishing her master’s in public policy to help further her work to ensure equal access to education, K-12 as well as higher education, and employment services for all.
Janna’s platform is “Dream, Believe, Achieve,” which represents the motto she uses when mentoring, “If you have a Dream you Believe in, you are able to Achieve it.” As someone who had mentors when she was younger, she credits the individuals who worked with her to building her confidence, helping her to achieve her dream of becoming an attorney. They inspired her to give back to others, using her own journey to help empower, inspire and uplift others. It has been her privilege provide mentorship to others for the past seven years, focusing on topics such as interview skills, public speaking, poise, resume building, etiquette, and college selection. This platform helps to provide mentees with the skills and confidence they need to achieve their goals, and encourages them to continue to Dream, Believe and Achieve.
