About SJ

Welcome to Simply Jamilah, a place on the Internet filled with a variety of blog posts, all of which are open and honest and a genuine reflection of me.

And by “me,” I mean me. ~~~>

My name is Jamilah, which I have learned to be Arabic for the word “beautiful,” so essentially, the name of this site is “Simply Beautiful.” My main goal for Simply Jamilah, and honestly my goal for life, is to encourage people. I want this blog to encourage people to be their most authentic selves and not conform to who they think they’re supposed to be; no matter who you are, you are simply beautiful (see what I did there?), and it’s time to embrace it.

Simply Jamilah, or as I will sometimes refer to as “SJ,” is comprised of all kinds of content– all of my interests are on this blog. All of my short stories, travels, embarrassing life moments are on this blog. I also have a section dedicated to my love for all things style, which is completely different from fashion (fun fact). Because I am consistently inspired by women, there is an entire page dedicated to highlighting women and young ladies who inspire me. Last, but certainly not least, there’s Simply Special, my knock-off podcast (audio recordings crafted in my bedroom). PSA: I do not have a podcast because everyone and their mother has a podcast. Simply Special is for those times when hearing my voice has more impact than reading words (plus I get lazy sometimes…don’t we all?).

For more about me, as one would infer from the picture above, I thoroughly enjoy a good cup of coffee; I usually drink decaf with about a quarter of a cup of Italian creme creamer. Oddly specific, I know. Anyway, I am currently twenty years young (born June 17th; I have the pleasure of occasionally sharing my birthday with America’s Father’s Day), and I’m in college, majoring in interior architecture and minoring in radio/TV/film. I currently live in the United States, in the great state of Tennessee (which is also where I go to school); I am African-American (some people think I’m not because of my name). I feel now is where I would add my favorite things, so I love music, writing, the color yellow, style/design, styling people, and dogs (even though I recently found out I’m allergic; shout out to you Stella).

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me and the beautiful world I call Simply Jamilah. If you want to get in touch for any reason (questions, requests, or just to have a simple conversation), fill out the form below, and I promise I’ll get back to you.

Welcome to my world; please be kind to it.

With all my love,
