While she tends to be very quiet and reserved around strangers, her personality can do a complete 180° when she's with her friends, becoming quite rambunctious and outgoing. Her main hobbies include listening to music, procrastinating, watching cartoons and of course, art.
Jianna has been honing her artistic abilities since she could first grasp a crayon, and soon became more serious about her skill once she discovered other artists on the internet and drew a lot of her inspiration from the Japanese cartoons known as 'anime' as well as other American cartoons.
