The hashtag #idoitforjholiemoussa was started on the day that Mount Vernon lost a beloved student and friend, Jholie Moussa.

 

Jholie, a sophomore, was known as a girl who inspired others; from her personal outlook on life to the actions she took in striving to achieve her highest potential in all areas of her life. Johlie took academics seriously and was very dedicated to using the talents she was given by God each day and in the future.

 

She was committed to her classes and focused on getting good grades in order to graduate high school and be successful in life.

 

Students at Mount Vernon and friends of Jholie created this hashtag not only in remembrance of this amazing girl, but also to represent a promise; a promise to follow in her footsteps.

 

As Asya Jones explains on behalf of all of Jholie’s friends “This is a promise to honor Jholie by using the talents we have to be the best we can, a promise to always help others, and to strive to do our best in school and all other aspects of our lives.”  Students feel that since Jholie was taken too early and kept from fulfilling her life’s purpose, they want to show their love and admiration by fulfilling their own, inspired by her and how she lived her life every day. Jholie’s legacy includes numerous students and friends who have committed to utilizing their talents and following their dreams; they way they believe Jholie would have herself.

 

Jholie touched many people, but perhaps none as much as her twin sister, Zhane. Friends remember how these sisters were inseparable.

 

Jones explains, “All siblings may fight but you could see how much Jholie and Zhane loved one another and would defend each other no matter what.”

 

“Jholie was a smiley, kind hearted young woman. I had the amazing privilege of knowing her. She was always positive and tried her hardest at school. She loved singing and always said she would do something with her talent one day, “ Jones continued.

 

“I have been friends with the her since the beginning of the school year and she was never negative,” said senior, Kamren Royster.

 

When asked what she loved most about Jholie, senior Makenzie Whitney, a close friend of the twin sisters, said, “Her personality; she was so goofy. She was the most awkwardly funny person in an good way. Her smile and her bubbliness could always put a smile on your face.” Jholie impacted Whitney by always “brightening up my day and being herself.”

 

While Jholie impacted the lives of many, what most people remember is the way she treated others not only as friends, but as family. In the world of high school, where there is often judgement and insecurity, Jholie stood out as the girl who treated everyone with kindness and respect, who tried to prop others up rather than bring them down.

 

Friends say that Jholie left her mark on Mount Vernon and will always be remembered, will always be loved, and will always be missed.
