Hi! I’m Jasmine, I enjoy long walks on the beach and talking about myself to complete strangers who land on my biography pages by accident.
Believer + marketing/communications guru +
grad student + volunteer philanthropist + red wine advocate, and dog mom. Also, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin living in Colorado Austin on a mission to serve with my talents. These are my Zealous Ambitions to be everything God has called me to be…
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START A BLOG?
This isn’t my first rodeo I’ve been blogging for over 10 years now. The feelings I get when I’m blogging are mutual with the platform. I love blogging, and blogging loves me.
WHERE DID THE NAME, “ZEALOUS AMBITION”, COME FROM?
I’m not really sure, I think I dreamed about it. Once it was in my head I couldn’t get away from it. This might be more than just a blog one day and since I own the domain, I will sue the heck out of whoever tries to steal this name. Okay, that’s an example of my zealousness.

WHAT’S YOUR FULL-TIME GIG?

WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I grew up in Houston, TX and left the nest to attend undergrad in Austin. Somehow I moved to Denver for two years after undergrad (I didn’t like it, snow sucks) and then ended up right back in Austin.
Because I’m lactose-intolerant I’m going to refrain from saying cheese enchiladas, but I can eat avocados with almost anything!
Coffee. Yes, I know coffee isn’t a place but after I have my morning coffee it feels like I’m in a different world. (Yep, a TV show reference, because my parents named me after Jasmine Guy. Not the Disney princess, I’m older than her…by a couple of months.)
FAVORITE ITEM IN MY CLOSET?
I have this black (faux) fur cardigan that is to die for! PETA, I said faux. It’s fake. Relax. Or a jean button down shirt, which happens to be three sizes too large.
WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU ALWAYS DO WHEN YOU START YOUR DAY?
Pray. Then I ask Alexa to tell me the weather.
WHAT SHOW DO YOU BINGE WATCH ON NETFLIX?
Jane the Virgin – it’s such as great example of Latinx culture, millennial issues, friendships, drama, and entertainment. It’s almost squeaky clean.
I also have to accomplishement of watch 11 seasons of Grey’s Anatomny in 2017.
