Detroit teacher gives student, A'Ja Booth, a kidney
You can be used by God to make a difference.

A Detroit physical education and health teacher was when she gave her student a new lease on life by

donating a kidney.

According to Detroit News, the school literally rolled out the red carpet for the ladies, who walked into the

gymnasium arm-in-arm, smiling.

Booth, a West Side Academy senior, was flanked by 10 classmates and a counselor as 11th and 12th peers

sat in bleachers and cheered.

“This is what we do as teachers,” said Muhammad, 39, a wife and mother of one son. “I did not do it for

the accolades. I saw a human being in need and if it were my child, I’d want someone to step forward and

help him.”

When it was Booth’s turn to have words Tuesday, she got emotional, covered her eyes and cried.

“I am really thankful and blessed,” she said. “I can’t thank her any more than I already have. I look at

her as my second mother. She’s a wonderful woman.”
