You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possibly be.”

— Theresa Sackey

From her birth in Dallas, Nov. 2, 2001, to her death in 2018, she nourished people around her with love, faith and music. Theresa’s laughter and smile brought joy to her friends and family throughout her life. Although she only had 16 years on Earth, she truly lived life to the fullest. As the historian of Student Council, a member of Interact and a part of Debate, she will be remembered as a bright, shining light in the community. She leaves behind her mom, dad and older sister, Cassandra, a Wylie East alumna.

Theresa’s funeral reception is Saturday, Sept. 8, at 11 a.m. at Restland Funeral Home where her family and friends will celebrate the eminence of her life.

About the Writer
Valerie Msafiri, Editor in Chief

Since my last name is apparently hard to pronounce, you don’t have to read it in your head when you read this beautifully constructed bio. HI 🙂 I’m Valerie Msafiri (mm- sA- fi-ri) or Msafari or Msafire.. you get the idea. That’s probably the most interesting thing about me, but, I bet I can make you laugh at least once in a conversation. No, seriously, DM me on Twitter (@kingg.val).

So according to my mom, “school is my life,” but, while I’m not being a junior at Wylie East High School doing school stuff, like, reading, writing, or studying, you can find me at home…reading, writing, or studying. I’m also a devout music connoisseur, and, any chance I get, I will have headphones in. Besides being Editor in Chief of the newspaper, I’m involved in so many other clubs on campus, but none of them hold true to my heart as this one. Enjoy 🙂
