Welcome to Simply Jamilah!

Hello, my beautiful gem!

Welcome to Simply Jamilah, a completely candid blog written by a super candid young adult who’s still trying to grasp the concept of adulting. This is a place where identities don’t have to be altered to match society and please others. This is a place where you are encouraged to be who you are. Think your thoughts. Dress the way you want. Say what you want. Do what makes you happy, not what makes others happy.

This blog is a hodgepodge of different, random elements that make up my brain, from my unedited originally written short stories and recipes to moments in my life I want to remember forever and so much more! You are entering my amazing, beautiful, weird world; please be kind to it. That’s all I ask. This is me just being me, and this is a judgement free zone. We only uplift and encourage here.

Sit back. Be yourself. Enjoy.

  1. I’m speechless. It’s a sad story I’ve ever read. It’s too late to regret but the best thing I guess…
