For all of you that know, Ambitious Girl World’s mission is to empower Ambitious Girls everywhere to live their best lives. You may have noticed that the site has gotten a new makeover! Courtesy of Brittany Melton, a fellow Ambitious Girl, and a Web Design Extraordinaire! I found Brittany in the twitter streets after she was tweeting dope design tips. One reason I love following Brittany besides her design knowledge is her, Today’s lessons tweets. Her tweets seem to pop up in a timely manner on my feed, indirectly inspiring me to never give up in chasing my dreams. Brittany has done a phenomenal job working on my site and designed my first logo for Ambitious Girl World, adding fuel to the fire in finally taking serious steps in the greatness of what Ambitious Girl World can be. Naturally, I wanted to shed the spotlight her as well as introduce the first installment of, #AmbitiousGirlSeries.
#AmbitiousGirlSeries with Brittany
What’s your name and where are you from?
Brittany from Alabama
What do you do? As in, what’s your day job? And what’s your passion project?
I’m a web and logo designer during the day, artist, and gamer at night. I’m hoping to be an artist and a character designer full-time someday.
What does ambition look like to you?
Ambition looks like making the impossible happen! You can make the impossible, possible with just one to-do list at a time…even when you don’t “feel” like it. Ambition isn’t the title or swagger we have on the outside, it’s for those times when life gets hard and you have to make the dreams happen.
What are your dreams and what steps are you taking to achieve them?
I want to be an artist and character designer. I’m slowly but surely taking painting and illustration classes, building a community around my art, and trying to create a new piece each day.
Life Mantra: Everything you need is already manifesting.
What advice would you give to your 8-year-old self?
You’re a great artist, even if someone else gets recognition for your hard work and you don’t. Keep drawing.
Words of wisdom for other ambitious girls like you?
Take a large dream goal and break it into smaller steps. You may not be able to do your dream job full-time now, but maybe you can spend this year gaining a useful skill related to that dream.
What I appreciate about Brittany’s work ethic is not just her willingness to offer quality customer service but her patience in helping explain the process to you. Brittany is very creative and accommodating. She knows her stuff and is happy to answer any questions you may have. This was my first time hiring a designer for my site, and it has definitely set the bar with anyone else I do business with in the future. She isn’t just a designer; she goes the extra mile by also acting as a design connoisseur with a willingness to provide explanations and expertise regarding web design. I’m extremely pleased with how things turned out and I hope to do business with Brittany again in the future!

#AmbitiousGirlSeries will be an on-going series devoted to dope women doing their thang and chasing their dreams and ambitions no matter how hard life gets. I think it’s important to start the conversation that we all deserve the life we want to live. We don’t have to give up on our dreams or ourselves. Seeing other women carrying out their goals should be a motivator that you can do it too! There’s enough space for us all to live out our dreams and continue to chase these checks. There’s true power in words and thoughts, so let’s start to hold each other accountable and actively work towards the lives we want to live. You just have to believe in yourself, find hope in your situation and imagine the possibilities. Anything is possible, you have what it takes and deserve whatever you want in this lifetime.
