Hello, my name is Shielteal Louize Watah. My parents are Steve and Michon Watah. I come a big family. I have six siblings their names are Laliyah, Landon, Vaughn, Grafton, Lisette and Genevieve Watah. They mean everything to me, as long as they’re okay I will be fine. I’m a junior attending Klamath Union High school. I’m a three sport athlete. I play volleyball, basketball and I’m also a track & field athlete. My favorite events are triple jump and javelin where I competed for the OSAA State Championships at Hayward Field two years in a row. My favorite sport is basketball, I’ve been playing it for as long as I can remember. It’s my first love. I went to state last year for basketball as a sophomore and was selected for 2nd team all-state tournament honors. I hope to pursue my dream and play at the next level. My biggest inspiration is LeBron James, who is also my favorite basketball player along with my Dad. I enjoy reading, working out, and spending time with my family. I’m honored to run for queen in the longest running native tournament in the world and best of luck to all participants and teams playing this coming weekend!
