Zhane adds style wherever she can.  She and partner Josh Johnwell placed 9th in the Nation at the 2017 JV National Championships.  When designing the debate site rather than just place “Page Under construction” messages, she included Missy Elliott’s Under Construction album to add a little more flava (as well as write about herself in 3rd person).
