Malik was a smart, loving, and unique young man. Some say he even had an old soul or maybe even been here before. Malik enjoyed being around his family, whom he loved very much. He loved to play video games, play with his trucks and cars. Malik loved to ride his bike, but most of all playing basketball. He always dreamed of becoming a basketball star one day. Malik enjoyed going to school and was one of the top students in his class with his grades. He had much love and respect for his teachers and always asked, "How was your day?" Malik always wanted to be the best of everything and he was full of life. If you had known or ever come across Malik you would have known that he was a very special and remarkable young boy who loved everyone. He could always brighten your day with his smile and hugs.
