Born in Wilmington, Delaware, Jamila Mustafa is quickly approaching household name status, having done work with networks from Fox to BET to A&E dating back to 2004. During her career as an award-winning broadcast journalist, she has interviewed the likes of French Montana, Zach Greenberg, Nas, Mark Whalberg, and more. Her work ethic has been recognized by her peers, having been a part of coveted lists such as BET’s 30 Under 30, Young, Black and Lit via Rolling Out, and HBCU Buzz’s 30 Under 30 College Graduates and even boasting a nomination for Forbes 30 Under 30.

Jamila has long possessed the desire to be an inspiration to young women. She competed in various pageants, being crowned Miss Delaware Teen Essence, Miss Teen Essence USA, and Miss Delaware State to name a few. At only 24 years old, Jamila also known as JMedia has already branded herself as the fashion forward millennial media “it” girl with a sparkling personality and sharp intelligence to match. In  recent sit down with Madam Mozell, Jamila revealed some of her goals for the future and her plan to earn her spot on the official Forbes 30 Under 30 list.

I am in no rush to make it, but you know that’s on my bucket list. It’s just amazing to be recognized in that caliber. To be honored! I get to attend the summit and then all the Forbes events. They always invite me so it’s a family thing…My main goal is to make the list so that I can select the person who is not doing everything that they want to do in life. A young African-American who aspires to be awesome. If I can have that power, not for myself to brag and say I’m on the list but to put somebody else in a position to soar. That’s why I really want to be on the list. You know, if black people don’t have the power to make the moves then we can’t-do anything.
