We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashlee Wynn and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashlee, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
When deciding whether to give up or to keep going, I think about the moment where I am on the other side of my accomplishment or goal. I compare this moment to a moment where I have decided to either give up or stop in the middle of progressing to the goal I am trying to accomplish. I weigh the two feelings in my mind. I ask myself “what do I want to feel?” “what do I want to gain?” from going through this process of expanding into a different version of myself. Essentially, goals to me are accomplishing something that expands outside of just myself. If I accomplish something, It effects everyone/everything around me. “I eat, we all eat” is a mantra I have running through my mind often. So many people have poured into me and I am so grateful for their love and sacrifice.I want to give back. My desire to give through my accomplishments does not blind me in making decisions that don’t align well with my purpose. I like to find the balance in giving through what I can do and maintaining my purpose and peace. If I believe that something is not serving me and my community I re-evaluate and I change my approach. I refine the goal to be as specific as I need it to be to make sure that I can accomplish it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am Content Creator, which is an umbrella term for visual marketing with a splash of self expression. (at least to me anyway) I am a graduate from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, I majored in studio Art with specialization in photography. Attending an all women’s college really shaped how I saw the world of art. I developed my skill is in content creation when I was in my Junior year. My art in my own words is making things “pretty” or very aesthetically pleasing. At the moment, I create content for companies to help market their new products and reach different consumers across all major platforms. I still feel I have so far to go in my career as a creative. I want to make art that isn’t just for consumption or capitalistic gain. I want to make films and magazine covers. I want my work to inspire young girls who look like me to pursue their own dreams. I want my work to provoke anyone to believe that their perspective of this world matters and that they too need a seat at the table. As I am developing my creative voice, I have learned that saying “No” will actually lead to more doors than saying “Yes”.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My heavy rotations spots in Atlanta are as follows: Taqueria Del Sol ( They have 3 locations in ATL, all are BOMB and very different moods, so you can decide which mood you are in and go enjoy! Their Margaritas are good too!)
Fat Matt’s Rib Shack (Very Good BBQ!)
Ton Ton Ramen & Yakitori (Inside PCM Food Court)
Botiwalla (Inside PCM Food Court)
Fred’s Meat & Bread Inside (Krog Street Market)
Green Sprout Vegetarian (Vegan Friendly) Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would dedicate my success to specifically My Mother (Cheryl Wynn), Grandmother (Mattie Jackson), Auntie Charolette Price ), and younger sister (Brandi Wynn). My tribe. Without these three women, I would not be an ounce of the person I am today. They are the strongest women in the world to me. I borrow their strength when I can’t find my own. They have seen ever face I have and they have shown me unconditional love and support. Because of them, I believe in my dreams today.
