Fun fact: I was recently been named an All-American on the Floor exercise at the 2017 NCAA National Championships

             Zaakira Muhammad, a senior Broadcast Journalism major with a sports communication minor, was born and raised in Pennsauken New Jersey, about 10 minutes from North Philadelphia. She is also an athlete on the Women’s Gymnastics team at WVU. I chose WVU because of the atmosphere of the college itself. I live near the city, so being in the mountains was so different than from what I was use to. It is just so beautiful that I was immediately hooked.

            She is currently a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success organization.

            Her dream is to stay in the college sports atmosphere and to become a sideline reporter for a division 1 school. After graduation in May, she plans to volunteer coach at a university while attending graduate school.

            She has also been named MVP for the past two years straight. Gymnastics has been her entire life and has shown her how to manage her time with academics and athletics.
