We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamila Hubert and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jamila, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I honestly have always been in a kitchen since I was a child and my fondest bonds and memories revolve around food. I volunteered to cook for my friends all the time and did a few pop-up shops and saw how people reacted to my food. To me, it’s definitely something that’s lucrative and I still enjoy the look of awe and nostalgia I see on people’s faces.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I just started my catering business last year. I know a lot about food but I’m getting mentorship on the business side while growing my business. When you order from Jamila’s Creations, know that every food order has been touched by loving hands that give you that boost and love that you need to get through your day. It’s that full-body hug you needed this am/pm, the buffer between you and your annoying coworkers, the break from your child’s homework. I show the utmost love through my food and recipes.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I enjoy skating, so living near Atlanta gives you the opportunity to skate every day out the week. I won’t kill your legs though. Mondays we either skate at Skate Towne off Old Nat or Sparkles Kennesaw. DJ Ham, DJ Solo and DJ Craig are amazing vibes. Tuesday we get some Slutty Vegan from the one on the Southside (Jonesboro) and I get you lit from behind the bar and check out a few open mics or jam sessions. Wednesdays, we skate at Cascade for the adult session.

Thursday we might relax at Jeju for the whole day. Friday and Saturday, we might pull up to Metro and bowl or skate. Skating on Sunday is mandatory but Cascade isn’t always. I may go to Sparkles Smyrna. Hanging at my house or pulling up to the house of one of my skate or DJ or musician friends can be a vibe too.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate my business to my family, blood or by love. They believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. Mom, Auntie Gwen, Uncle Melvin, Dad, Emanuel, Bracolla, Paris, and so many more.
