“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” 

~Psalm 73:26

Ta’Ziyah’s Journey

       Born on December 15, 2007 in Park Slope Brooklyn, New York, to Ayodele and Shelly Smith. Not only was he a blessing to his parents and siblings, but to everyone who was fortunate enough to meet him. At a very young age, “Taz,” as he was so fondly called was always cooperative, fair, friendly, good-natured, lovable, passionate and kind to all that crossed paths with him. An excellent student with a passion and desire for learning, leading, helping his classmates and giving back to the community, Ta'Ziyah excelled academically in school. Being nominated to participate in the Junior Lighthouse program which builds, supports, and promotes leadership in young students.


      Being a member of The Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) helped to equip Taz with many life skills. He was able to adapt such skills and overcome being a victim of bullying and understood that everyone, should be treated equally and with respect. Continuing his work in the Boys and Girls Club, he was nominated to attend the Youth of the Year dinner, where he received the award for Youth of the Month for his actions and ability to give back and help others, despite his own personal struggles.


       Taz enjoyed playing flag football, Pokémon, dining at various restaurants, critiquing food, vacationing with family and most importantly, he loved drinking peppermint tea with his mommy! Ta’Ziyah was well-rounded and loved by everyone who encountered him. He may have seemed different to others because as a boy, he liked purple, played with stuffed animals, and loved rocks, but he lived according to his own design and did not conform to the norms of society.


Ta’Ziyah lived up to the meaning of his name which means “Passionate Soul.”


Ta’Ziyah’s Aspirations

He wanted to help sick children and hoped to one-day find a cure for cancer.

He also wanted to create an interactive website to provide information about sharks to children.


Ta’Ziyah’s Legacy

The Oak Meadows Elementary School named the Wall Ball court the Ta’Ziyah Wall highlighting his favorite habit #4 “Think Win Win”. A tree was also planted in his honor in the school’s garden.

The Menifee Boys and Girls Club also named the Pokémon Club the Ta’Ziyah Club because he played well, traded fair, and was always willing to help other children.

Ta’Ziyah will forever and always be loved and his life will always be valued through the memories he created.


In loving memory of a gem, a star and an angel: Ta’Ziyah T. Smith
