Born in San Jose, California and raised in Las Vegas, Janae McIntosh was crowned Miss Nevada Teen USA on 15 May 2022 and was the host state delegate at the Miss Teen USA 2021 pageant held in Reno in November that year. One of Janae’s passions is traveling, from visiting the Galapagos Islands to recently having the chance to take in the beauty of ancient Rome.
Miss Nevada Teen USA 2022 Janae Mcintosh was born in San Jose California but raised Las Vegas. She started modelling for Yellowberry as a pre-teen.
At high school she won the prestigious G.A.E.L. Award given to the student that best overall represents her school academically and enthusiastically. Having already accomplished her college goals to be accepted into the University of Oregon, which she will attend this fall, Janae hopes to graduate with her MBA, intern at Apple headquarters, and one day become a marketing director for the Apple marketing team. She sees Apple as a reflection of her personality and drive. She hopes to inspire others through her creativity and also teach others to embrace their individuality.
When Janae isn’t working hard on her studies you can see her tackling the responsibilities of being Miss Nevada Teen USA 2022! From meeting the Mayor to throwing the first pitch she is leading the charge for the youth of Nevada to get out into their communities and make a difference. Janae not only won Miss Nevada Teen USA on her first try in her first pageant but she also won the coveted title of Miss Congeniality voted by her peers.
One of Janae’s passions is traveling, from visiting the Galapagos Islands where she was inspired by the stunning nature of the sea turtles and sea lions to recently having the chance to travel to Italy to stand in the nearly 2000-year-old Colosseum and taking in the beauty of ancient Rome was a life-changing experience she will never forget. She loves watching movies and enjoying her two puppies Reagan and Minzy.
