Miss Newark USA 2019
“Most supportive”, “Highest GPA, “Most community service served ” “Greek woman of the Year” “ Employee of the Month” and “ Selfie Queen” are just some of Sadiyyah Shakoor’s accomplishments thus far. Born in Elizabeth but raised in Newark, Sadiyyah “the lucky one” Shakoor “grateful; thankful” is the true definition of a phenomenal woman in the making. With style and grace and with a smile always on her face, Sadiyyah was destined to be remarkable. Sadiyyah was studying Health psychology at Bloomfield college before she was forced to put a halt on her education after recently being diagnosed with Lupus. Once she makes a full recovery Sadiyyah plans on continuing her education. She always had a heart for helping others in need so it would be no surprise that her future goal would be to be a nurse practitioner working in a urban community. Outside from working at the United States Post Office, she enjoys baking some sweet treats, hanging out with my sorority sisters Beta Kappa Sigma Black and Latina Sorority Incorporated, volunteering in the community, dancing in the mirror to Beyoncé, and shopping on a budget. All in all, Sadiyyah hopes that her humbleness and smile can be something that can brighten up someone’s day. Sadiyyah hopes that her time as Miss Newark USA inspires young girls and women to be the best they can be and never give up on their dreams. Nevertheless, having a Sadiyyah Shakoor in ones life is a “fortunate and thankful” blessing and she is blessed to have the opportunity to represent the great city of Newark, New Jersey.
