MEET JAM GAMBLE
Proceeding without permission.
An Elite Voice. The saying goes that “we cannot hold a torch to light another’s path without brightening our own” (Ben Sweetland). Jahmeelah (Jam) Gamble is one of Toronto’s gifted leaders who pushes the envelope and encourages everyone to cultivate their own inner light and abilities. The multi-passionate media personality and speaker is on a mission to provide a voice for all. From the classroom to the stage, to your event, Jahmeelah is part social change agent, part media maverick and part leader of the new school. The Brampton raised speaker inspires women, men and youth to go beyond their limitations and grab hold of the life that they want.
Proceed without permission. With an unconventional approach to life, her journey has been filled with reroutes, unexpected opportunities and big risks. Jahmeelah is living proof that formal training is not always necessary. Stumbling into her passion, she began her career in education and advocacy as a teen working for a special needs summer camp. A story unlike many others in her field, she (nor anyone close to her) has had a disability, yet she still found herself at home as a leader and influencer.
Connector of People, Ideas and Energy. Her eagerness to bring awareness to everyone on a larger platform led her to “accidentally” pitch the informative television show, A Voice for All, to Rogers TV. 6 seasons later as the show host and producer, A Voice for All has become a place where the community comes together to learn, subscribe to and recognize that full inclusion for people with disabilities is for the betterment of the community on the whole. The additional essence of A Voice for All is laying foundation for discussions from front-line staff, community groups and advocates rounding off the show’s core element that everyone indeed has a story to tell that’s worthy of an ear.
Watching Jahmeelah host A Voice for All as she discusses topics with guests ever so candidly, her body language is inviting and her personality is relatable. These welcoming traits have opened up other opportunities in media for Jam to pursue. Now rightfully cementing her footsteps as a known media personality, she has launched a speakers program called Slayer of the Mic.
Jahmeelah’s experience in front of the camera, likeableness and magnetism, allow her to correlate to many as the Master of Ceremonies at large scale social events such as the United Way Community Achievement Celebration, W.A.V.E Youth Day and TEDx Women to name a few.
