So you’re apart of REDSKINS NATION, #BestDecisionEver… And you want to get to know me…I like you already!

Hi, I’m Javai and I am ecstatic to start my second season as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader. I had the privilege of getting to know some of you about two years ago as a member of the Redskins Cheerleader Ambassadors! I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to work for such an amazing organization, and humbled to be a part of such a dynamic group of women! Being called a First Lady of Football was my dream, and still is!

Hi, I’m Javai and I am ecstatic to start my second season as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader. I had the privilege of getting to know some of you about two years ago as a member of the Redskins Cheerleader Ambassadors! I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to work for such an amazing organization, and humbled to be a part of such a dynamic group of women! Being called a First Lady of Football was my dream, and still is!

I grew up in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area; needless to say I was born a SKINS fan! At least that's what my family taught me! I fell in love with dance at the age of 5, and never looked back! As a child, I spent countless hours training in ballet, tap, jazz and pointe. Dance competitions became a part of my household's weekend plans. Along the way, I discovered cheerleading; yes it is a sport! Anything that allows me to move and to perform has always captivated me. As a college student, I cheered throughout my undergrad experience. After graduating, I was honored to dance professionally for the NBA as a Washington Wizards Girl! 

Loving my Alma Mater, Howard University, is an understatement! H-U, YOU KNOW! I loved college, and loved pledging for my sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I graduated from undergrad with a Bachelor's of Science in psychology, and a minor in human development. My master's degree, which I also earned from Howard University, is in social work. I enjoy working as a therapist, and one of my passions is to help educate families about mental health! 

When I am not working and dancing, I enjoy reading books on love and relationships, and spending time with my family, friends, and sorority sisters. I also love to sing; in the shower, in the car, and in my room. I even started taking some voice lessons, and sang at my teammate’s wedding. When the weather is right, you can find me on the beach, by a pool, or at a Sunday brunch!

More than anything, when I am not at FedExField or out in the community, I love to take each day one moment at a time.  I love spontaneity. It’s a beautiful thing to just "be" and to occasionally live without a plan!

I am beyond blessed to have such an amazing support system! I have the most loving parents! I have to say, "thank you and I love you," to my family and friends!

I cannot wait to see you on game day! I’ll be flipping down the field when we score!  #HAILYEAH

 

Cheers,
