And the thirty-four-year-old has worked very hard to get to where she is today.

She was brought up in London...

And she described herself as "bookish" and "shy" at school amidst her suffering from anorexia between the ages of fourteen and seventeen.

Jameela was bullied severely throughout her school years...

"I was physically and verbally [abused] very badly at school," she told the HuffPost. "Like beaten senseless by kids for being from a Pakistani family and for being poor. That was before the age of 10, and that went on until I was about sixteen."

She was also diagnosed with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.

This is a genetic disorder that causes loose joints, joint pain, stretchy skin, and abnormal scarring, and after Jameela was hit by a car when she was seventeen, she broke several bones and damaged her spine.

The car accident helped her develop a better relationship with her body...

And when she recovered, Jameela went on to study at Queen's College School in London and alongside teaching English as a foreign language, she pursued a career in modeling and photography.

Jameela used her personal traumas to empower others...

In 2015, she launched Why Not People? - an event and membership company dedicated to hosting live entertainment accessible to people with disabilities. She also campaigns strongly for the body positivity movement, and she has very publically slammed the Kardashian family in the past for promoting unhealthy dietary supplements.

She also campaigns with the battle against racism.

Jameela has been subjected to racism all of her life, with her explaining, "I've experienced racism out in the streets wherever I am." "I have experienced racism online from trolling. I just recently, in 2018, did this interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy for Channel 4 and it was a widely circulated interview, and we got messages like, 'That room must have been stinking with those P**** in the room.' Those are the kinds of messages I receive on a daily basis."

But Jameela is a prime example of rising through the hate...

And she now has a very successful career on British television as a presenter, DJ, and host.

She's also very opinionated...

And she isn't afraid of letting others know exactly how she feels.

She has been in her fair share of heated online arguments...

And Jameela regularly stands up to potty-mouthed journalist Piers Morgan in furious debates.

But she's often criticized for taking things "too far."

The star has racked up her fair share of haters who tend to accuse her of trying to be too woke and being performative.

She regularly faces backlash...

And this week is no exception to that.

On Sunday night, the star posted a makeup-free selfie to her Instagram.

The comments were filled with fans complimenting her complexion and pointing out how "perfect" her skin looked.

After seeing this comment...

Jameela decided to write a response, but what she had to say really didn't go down well with people.

Here's the comment that sparked everything. But the drama was far from over...

Jameela decided to clap back at this fan.

The star replied with this:

Ouch.

This only caused more backlash...

And fans are now even more furious with the star.

Her clap back definitely didn't have the impact she'd imagined.

And she didn't stop there...

She offered a further explanation for her comment.

Regardless of the backlash, Jameela clearly stands by her comment. For more on the star, scroll on to read about how she opened up about her abortion...
