Ta'keyah accepted Christ at an early age and believed that God was with her through every trial she ever faced. Ta'keyah was a funny, brave, and selfless young woman always willing to
help someone else. She had the biggest smile that would light up the room. She
had dreams of being a makeup artist and a hair stylist. She loved playing with
her son and enjoyed spending time with her family. Ta'keyah was extremely
optimistic and loved meeting new people. She treated everyone she met the way that
she would have wanted to be treated and that is without judgement because she
knew and hated what being judge felt like.
