During the pandemic Maliah and her mother have done D.I.Y. projects around the house. She and her mother recently redid an old vanity at her dad’s house. 

They spray painted the vanity and cleaned it up and Maliah described the new vanity look as amazing. She played soccer as well as cheered at Philadelphia High School. She was also a member of the Beta Club since 5th grade and FBLA. Maliah’s favorite subject in high school was science. She would also like her favorite teacher who pushed her to becoming a better student and person, Mrs. Anne Fisackerly.
