Who is Girl with Drive?

Hi all, I’m Amber. I’ve always been an overachiever and a little too ambitious (is that possible?).  So I started this blog to hopefully inspire other young savvy women to work hard towards their dreams.

I love the idea that you can create a life that excites you. Girl with Drive is my outlet to document my career, style (on a budget of course) and life adventures.

When did you start your blog?

I started Girl with Drive in 2012. Back then I blogged about my time in college. My most popular post was ‘How to Survive a Cold Classroom’ lol.  In 2016, I started getting more serious about my blog and began working with local photographers and sharing my advice on being a young professional.

What did you study in college?

I have a Bachelor’s degree in History and minor in U.S. Latino/a Studies. I went to community college first and earned an Associates degree in General Studies.

What are some of your hobbies?

I love calligraphy and hand lettering. I make name tags for people at my church as practice lol. I also enjoy taking barre classes, watching (too much) reality tv, spending time with the Lord and traveling.

What do you do for a living?

I’m a journalist in the Washington, D.C. area. I mostly edit videos and write as much as I can. My work has been featured in The Washington Post, HuffPost and NBC News.
