Miranda B. was Simply Jamilah’s October 2019 Hidden Gem. Here is the full interview with the questions in the order they were asked:
SJ: What do you want right now?
MB: Right now I want a cold drink. Doesn’t necessarily have to be alcohol but something fruity.
What is your major and/or minor, and why did you choose it?
Interior architecture with a minor in photography, technically art with a concentration in photography. I chose it because I had a passion for both, but it would’ve been too much to take both on as majors.
What is your favorite alcoholic beverage?
Costello de poggio moscato; it’s an Italian wine.
What is the best thing about being a woman?
We sometimes get dresses that have pockets in them so that’s cool?
What is the biggest piece of advice you have about sex?
If you can’t laugh during sex with the partner you’re having sex with, they’re the wrong person to have sex with.
If you could move anywhere in the world and take your loved ones with you, where would you go and why?
North Carolina. The mountains are way better than Tennessee’s.
What is the best piece of advice for someone under 21?
There’s no rush to be an adult. Enjoy your youth.
Describe your relationship with Stella.
Indescribable. So much trust, patience, care, kindness, and unconditional love.
What are the pros and cons of being in a relationship?
Pros: You always have someone to talk to that you connect to on a deeper level, receive/give love, you can be goofy and serious with them, dates are fun.
Cons: Sometimes one person is in the mood and the other isn’t, personally distance (for my current relationship), and there’s an awkward stage that you can’t fart in front of them.
Most effective way you deal with your anxiety.
I fidget and when it gets too out of control, I do grounding exercises.
