Angel Gonzalez-Prado’s mother always told her daughter she could do whatever she wanted to do, be whatever she wanted to be. Sure, the fact she was in a wheelchair due to the effects of spina bifida, was going to make things more difficult. It didn’t, however, makes those things impossible.
Over the years the Redwood City teeneager and Sequoia High School sophmore has, on more than one occasion, proven her mother right.
She did it again this summer when Angel tried out for, and made, her school’s junior varsity cheerleading squad.
This past weekend Angel performed for the first time in front of a packed stadium during homecoming weekend.
Watch her story above.
