Career Video: CEO/Founder and Creative Director


“To be a successful entrepreneur, you have to be able to motivate yourself. And you have to be able to work on your own and actually stick to timelines and deadlines and be focused.” Jamila is the founder of Slapp, a make-up app that matches consumers with products that are right for their skin tone. She always felt she was creative, but wasn’t very good at art or music. After a degree in classics, and a MA in fashion journalism, she found her focus in writing. A variety of internships to build her experience followed, with Jamila later becoming a beauty writer and editor. Realising the industry was not very inclusive, she decided to make a change and create Slapp.
