Janet is 25 years of age and stands 182 cm tall. Through her reign, Janet wishes to help the disadvantaged children. She works with RD Producciones de Moda Escuela & Agencia de Modelos since 2011 and is fluent in English and Spanish languages.

Not new to the pageantry, Janet represented Callao in Miss Peru 2018 and was in the top five and that led her to the international pageant Top Model of the World 2018 where she was crowned as the new queen. She has started modelling at the age of 13 when her mother drove her to audition for Miss Teen Model 2011 and she won. Since then, Janet has been a part of fashion and modelling industry and paraded for international designers.



Last year, at Miss Grand International 2021, Miss Grand Perú 2021 Samantha Batallanos represented her country but unfortunately failed to place in the Top 21. However, Samantha was one of the winners of the Best in National Costume award and was highly appreciated for the performance. Peru holds one Miss Grand International crown under its belt; María José Lora was crowned Miss Grand International in 2017.
