“Your authenticity is worth millions.”



Jalilah is a Chicago native and recent graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Although she originally majored in Broadcast Journalism (and was certain she would be the next Oprah), Jalilah quickly found her passion for advertising instead. The ability to tap into a human truth and connect with people in a creative, irresistible way is what drew her to the industry. 
While in school Jalilah spent two years as a Resident Advisor and studied abroad in the Dominican Republic. Jalilah is a two-time fellow of the 4A’s Multicultural Advertising Intern Program and spent last summer as a Production Intern for The Martin Agency. She also was selected as a Most Promising Multicultural Student program winner by the American Advertising Federation. 
Jalilah is a closet gamer, natural hair enthusiast, and a chronic list maker. She loves laughing at her own jokes, drinking green smoothies, and singing 90’s RnB.
