2017 Exceptional Muslimah,  Kiezcha Walton

July 11, 2017



Islam has always been a big part of Kiezcha's life after being introduced to Islam in the 7th grade and taking her Shahadah. It was a life changing 

experience for her. Through Allah's mercy, she was able to accomplish all the goals she set out for herself. Throughout high school she was a three sport athlete, serving as team captain for all three sports (Cross Country, Track, and Girls Basketball). All while maintaining a 4.0 GPA all four years of high school, putting her in the top 5% of her graduating class. She was also involved in many other extracurricular activities like HOSA(Health Occupations Students of America) where she served as President, Yearbook Club, Athletes Against Bullying Club, and the National Honors Society, where she served as Parliamentarian. She was awarded the Presidents Volunteer Service Award for her community service commitments. During her senior year of high school, she made the decision to complete half of her Deen and get married. A decision that many people criticized her for but it was also a decision that had a positive influence on so many people. Kiezcha has always been a role model for those around her and she plans to continue being a mentor for others. She has been selected for a full scholarship through the NJ Stars program where she will be taking up

nursing as her major. She plans to continue her education and ultimately become a Nurse Practitioner. However, she still wants to give back to the youth in her community so she plans to coach a little league track team or basketball team in her free time.
