Having been born into a very creative family, Jamila always took a keen interest in writing and performing arts. She studied English Literature and Film at Manchester Metropolitan University before landing her first job doing sales in media production. Realising she wanted to be in front of the camera, she decided to undertake her Masters in Acting at Mountview in 2018 and hasn’t looked back. Her debut one-woman-show, Alien, Hold Onto Your Dreams, tells an honest, funny and at times awkward tale of race, femininity and representation in the current acting industry. The show will be on this October at the John Thaw Theatre (The Actors Centre, Covent Garden).
