Hello, my weird, beautiful, unique gem!

Welcome to Simply Jamilah, a completely candid blog written by a super candid and unique young woman who’s still trying to grasp the concept of adulting.


My name is Jamilah, and I am the girl in the right picture. I am the creator and writer of this blog. There are many words I could use to describe myself, but for now, I’ll just say this: I’m weird, at least that’s what I like to think. I freaking love being considered “weird.” Society likes to say being weird is a bad thing, but I think embracing what makes one “weird” is beautiful. We all have our quirks, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of. John Lennon once said, “It’s weird not to be weird.”

“Weird” is also a word I would use to describe this blog. It’s a hodgepodge of different (kind of random) elements that make up my brain, from my unedited originally written works to moments in my life I want to remember forever and a lot more. During the summer of 2017 when I wasn’t fulfilling my duties in a concession stand at a baseball park, I read a few books, and one book I read was Girl Online by Zoe Sugg. On the second page of the book, Penny, the main character, writes on her blog: “That’s why I’ve decided to give this blog a go- so I have somewhere I can say exactly what I want, when I want and how I want to- to someone. And not have to worry that what I say won’t sound cool or will make me look stupid…” I’m on the same page as Penny, and after working since I was twelve to create a blog that was one hundred percent me, I’ve finally done it.

You are entering my amazing, beautiful, weird world; please be kind to it. That’s all I ask.

I am the worst at salutations, so I’ll just end with…

Being weird is beautiful. Never forget that.



If you didn’t know, I am an extremely small YouTuber. Don’t roast me. Don’t come for me. This is my most recent video:

Something new I want to add to my channel is more cooking videos. This is the first video in my new “College Cooking With Milah” series, where I show you an easy alfredo recipe I make in my apartment-style dorm room.

I honestly don’t know what this vlog is. It’s pretty much me giving my opinion on a bunch of movies and venting about surrounding oneself with positive people and positive energy.
