Kobe Bryant's Sister Sharia Shares Throwback Photos with Him on Easter & National Siblings Day

Sharia Washington shared some old pictures with her late brother, Kobe Bryant, as she remembered him on Easter and National Siblings Day. The siblings looked super cool in their retro outfits.

Several people across the world recently celebrated National Siblings Day, and even though Kobe Bryant is no longer here, his sister, Sharia Washington, shared throwback photos of both of them.

In the post shared on her Instagram, Washington and Bryant were pictured rocking retro outfits while in the backseat of a car. With her right arm resting against Kobe, Sharia flashed a smile for the camera.

In celebration of Easter on Sunday, she shared another image that featured her and Kobe posing alongside their other sibling, Shaya.

Following the death of Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, in the January 26 helicopter crash, his older sister has continuously paid tribute to him. In February, Vanessa posted on Instagram:

"My sister-in-law got this cool tattoo to honor #GigiBryant and #Kobe,2~24 forever. Love you, @shariawash."

Vanessa wrote the caption while reposting a picture of a shoulder tattoo, which was in honor of the late NBA star and Gianna.

The black and white tattoo featured Gianna's jersey number "2" and Kobe's "24," with a black mamba snake weaving between the two numbers to form an infinity symbol.

Sharia graduated from Temple University, after which she worked as a volleyball coach for seven years.

Despite cutting off his two sisters financially, Kobe maintained a close relationship with them. Speaking on why he cut them off, the father of four revealed that he realized he had been holding them back by providing for them.

He also revealed that his siblings had been able to come to terms with his decision. He described them as smart college women while adding:

"I'm proud of them. They were able to get their jobs, get their own lives, take care of themselves."

Kobe Bryant further explained that rather than being resentful towards him, the two women were able to discover themselves better after he made the decision.

Sharia graduated from Temple University, after which she worked as a volleyball coach for seven years. She later became the director at the "Serve Receive Foundation," where she worked for another five years.

She presently serves as the director of sales and partnerships at SUN50. SUN50 is an apparel brand that focuses on protection from the sun through their clothing.

Washington currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband Jerrod Washington and their children, two girls and one boy.
