4 Years, 4 Apartments

I found myself reminiscing when I moved into my current apartment and feeling so grateful for all the places I’ve lived before that got me to this point. I made a video about it on Jamilah on Film but wanted to list the details of all my previous apartments. All these places played a part in shaping me into the person I am and the person I’m becoming.
