Jamila Ali

Jamila Pomeroy is a Kenyan-Canadian internationally-published writer, a filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist.
She is experienced with writing for documentary and television, journalism, commercial and editorial; and has contributed to over 20 globally-recognized entities such as BBC, Red Bull, HypeBae, HypeBeast, Network Entertainment, Montecristo, Nuvo, Our Natural Habitat and many more. Jamila is the founder and creative director of Canada’s first Black-owned print lifestyle magazine, Avocado Toast Post.
Jamila was born in Toronto, Ontario and grew up in New Westminster B.C, before moving to Vancouver B.C. Growing up with little-to-no representation of the Canadian Black experience, she's made it her mission to carve out space for the family dynamics, characters and story narratives she has witnessed (and experienced), in the effort to make BIPOC feel seen in literature and film. Additionally, she writes with a focus on sustainability, social issues, fringe politics, wellness and fashion.
