Who Is Ahmir Steward?
Ahmir hailing from Philadelphia, is a reality star. He joined TLC’s I Am Jazz in August 2018 and has been starring in the show since then.
Prior to starring in the show, he worked as a packer for nearly four months and later joined TruMark Financial Credit Union as a member service. However, he only worked for seven months in the company.
In October 2020, Steward started working at Walmart for a short period. Then he planned on joining the Air Force, but sadly the plans did not work out well.
In addition, Ahir, who graduated from Maritime Academy Charter School in 2017, isn’t currently going to college or working. Due to his no further plan on education and job, Jazz’s father, Greg Jenning, seems somewhat concerned about Jazz. Greg said,
“Admittedly, I’m not sure where the commonality is and what’s making this click so positively for Jazz. But ultimately, we can’t stop him from coming to Florida.”
Moreover, Jazz’s friends also told Jazz to take it slow with Ahmir. However, Ahmir’s Instagram stories revealed that he recently enrolled at the University of Southern California.
Ahmir was raised in Philadelphia, the United States, by his anonymous parents. He has kept his parent’s identity and information extremely low-key; however, he mentioned his father lives in Fort Lauderdale on the show I Am Jazz.
Also, while talking on the show about his parent’s approval for his relationship with Jazz, Ahmir said his father was on board, but his mother wasn’t.
“My mom is not actually as accepting as I originally thought she would be,” Ahmir shared in an episode of the show. “She didn’t acknowledge you for who you were. She would say ‘he’ and ‘that’s a man because he was born a man.'”
"The most hurtful thing my mom said was that Jazz was still a man and that I would be gay for being in a relationship with Jazz.”
“[I] lost it because I’m not gay. I’m not attracted to men. And Jazz is a female, so it just didn’t make sense to me.”
Ahmir also talked with Jazz and said that his mother would kick him out of the house if he continues dating Jazz.
“[My mom] might not let me back in the house, to be honest. …That’s just how she is. And I’m very outspoken. So yeah, that could potentially lead to me, I guess, being kicked out of the house or whatever else."
One of the reasons for Ahmir and Jazz’s breakup might be because of their parents.
