The seventeen-year-old Oliveira was born and raised in Tuolumne County. She is a senior at Sonora High School where she is a varsity football cheerleader and is on the swim team.
Oliveira wanted to run for Miss Tuolumne County because this is her final year residing in the motherlode and she wants to be a role model for young girls.
In addition to receiving the title and the crown as Miss Tuolumne county, Oliveira also won $300 and a $350 dance scholarship to Onstage Dance Studio.
After graduation, Oliveira would like to attend Sierra College in Rocklin before transferring to a California University. She would like to go into the medical field possibly as pediatric nurse.
