My name is Janée Valadão and I am a Senior at Point Loma High School, San Diego CA. I would like to thank the PFSA Scholarship Foundation for providing a Scholarship to help me pursue my goal of becoming a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I plan on attending San Diego State University in the Fall majoring in Kinesiology. I have been very involved in my Portuguese Heritage since I was a child. I was State Queen for the Supreme Council of the IDES in 2007. I have represented the San Diego Festa do Espirito Santo as Trinity Sunday Queen, Small Queen for the Centennial Festa and Queen of the 2014 Festa. However, my greatest passion has been cheerleading since I was 6 years old. I have competed in All-Star Cheer since I was 8 years old and have won many awards including Summit National Champion in 2014. Lastly, I wish to thank my parents Donald and Dinisa Valadao and my brother Justin for supporting me in everything I do.
