KIPP Philadelphia Public Schools
Saniyah’s contributions to KIPP DuBois Collegiate Academy in West Philadelphia are boundless. Academically, she made an early commitment to excellence and has maintained a 4.0-grade point average throughout her high school career and as a result was named a Questbridge National College Match finalist. Saniyah’s contributions go far beyond the classroom as she has also contributed to the school newspaper and yearbook. However, her greatest passions are cheerleading, dance and her business, “PopKorn Beauty.” Next year, she will make her mark at The University of Pennsylvania. Saniyah’s long-term plan is to improve Black communities by supporting and changing healthcare practices.
