Kamla wears a T-Shirt with a photos of Tiarah Poyau as she jumped out of an airplane 10,000 feet above the ground in memory of Tiarah Poyau who is the daughter of her sisterfriend, Vertina Brown - who passed away to gun violence.
Tiarah Shanice Poyau was born in April of 1994. Tiarah was an only child. Tiarah went to St Johns University and majored in Accounting.
Tiarah had many friends that she inspired to stay in school, in order to have a better life. I've heard so many testimonies about how Tiarah changed the life of so many. On September 5, 2016 Tiarah went to The J'Ouvert Festival with 3 friends and never came home. She was murdered by a young man, who was under the influence of alcohol. This man claimed that he doesn't remember killing Tiarah.
Please help her Mom to keep her memory alive. All she wants is for Tiarah to continue inspiring the youth. St John's University is willing to help by creating the scholarship program but it needs to be funded by her Mom. Together we can help struggling students achieve their education. Donations are accepted through Vertina Brown's (Tiarah Poyau's Mom's) PayPal Account at: email@example.com.

St. Francis de Sales School for the Deaf was started by Sr. Anne Behre on September 13, 1960 in a convent in Flushing, New York with four children. In 1963, the school moved to the Park Slope section of Brooklyn in order to accommodate more students. In 1965, St. Francis de Sales School for the Deaf became a private state supported 4201 School, one of eleven schools serving deaf and blind students in New York State. In 1973, St. Francis de Sales School for the Deaf moved to its present location on Eastern Parkway where it continues today to educate profoundly deaf children from infancy to eighth grade.
St. Francis de Sales School for the Deaf is to encourage the maximum potential for learning in each child regardless of race, creed or color. This education embraces all facets of the child – psychological, physical, social, and emotional with the goal of producing a well-adjusted deaf individual who makes maximum use of acquired skills.
