Bradford, where she became a member of the praise dance team. Kinah was a very outgoing person, and a book worm. She loved hanging out with her family and friends.

She was extra crazy about her dog Shaggy. Kinah had many talents. One was in writing. In high school she wrote a play. And just the other day, she brought a guitar. She had been wanting that guitar for years. Shekinah departed her life on July 31, 2021 at 5:36 pm. She leaves to cherish her fond memories: her mother Fatima and daddy Thomas (Sharlene).
