I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I am enough, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful, that the texture of my hair and that the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are all worthy and okay.

This is Simply Jamilah, a public time capsule of a regular shmegular human being. Simply Jamilah, often shortened to SJ/Ess Jay, is a place I created to feel like myself, to be unashamedly authentic, to capture the best and worst moments of my life. The beautiful thing about this tiny corner I created on the internet is anyone and everyone with a kind heart, genuine intentions, and open mind is welcome.

Being a woman is hard.

Being Black is hard.

Being an American is hard.

Becoming an adult while dealing with all of that in the 21st century is not an easy task, and the best way I deal with it is by talking into a microphone at an unreasonable hour of the day. With random tangents, anecdotes, and grammatically questionable sentences, I talk about anything and everything that pops into my mind while accomplishing the day-to-day task of being a woman in this confusing, evolving, scary lifetime.
