1. When she made a video for beauty junkies who have been shamed for wearing makeup...
As a beauty vlogger, it's quite obvious that Janina is passionate about makeup. Just like what she has said in the video, makeup makes her happy and unleashes her kikay personality which she's not ashamed of. For her, wearing makeup is like painting your house, putting plants in your garden, and hanging bright-colored curtains in your room, all of which satisfy the desire to make things beautiful.

2. When she openly talked about bullying...
In the first episode of her Perfectly Imperfect series, Janina focused on the most talked about topic among people her age which is bullying. Though she noted in the comments section that the scenes were not the actual events that happened to her, her video was effective in presenting the reality of bullying and how it affected people more than we could imagine.
3. When she urged her viewers to be fearless...
In the second episode of her Perfectly Imperfect series, Janina tackled the issue of overcoming our fears. Whether it's having self-doubts or being scared of failure, what we really need is a reminder from a friend (or even a stranger) that the only one pressuring and judging us is ourselves. We are our worst critic, and it's nice to realize that we must simply look at ourselves with kindness to be able to power through whatever that holds us back.
