We had the good fortune of connecting with Jazmine (Jazzy) Reyes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jazmine (Jazzy), is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success is passion, hard work & dedication. With those three things combined you can accomplish anything in whatever it is you want to be successful in life. Passion drives me naturally, hard working is in my genes, dedication is honesty believing that what I’m doing is very important and takes a lot of time and energy in to it to get better every day.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I believe what sets me apart from others is my ambition for dance. I’m proud of myself for not giving up easily, believing in myself, taking action and taking the time to learn more. I’m excited to continue my journey and see where I end up in my dance career. My path doesn’t end here.
I am where I am today thanks to my hard work and faith in the process of it all. Definitely wasn’t easy but I wouldn’t change a thing about it because I always learn from the failures.
One of the lessons I’ve learned is if there is 10 closed doors you’ve came across there will always be 1 door open for you. You have to learn to be patient and take in the “No’s” as an opportunity to the next “Yes” one step at a time.
You have to learn to love the process of your journey because every body’s story is different and unique where it could possibly make history in its own way, maybe not now but in the future!
I want the world to know to not underestimate themselves or sleep on their potential. There is always a place and time to work on that one goal they have and remember to be patient and humble through it all.

One thing about me is that I don’t give up easily and always find a way to make things happen “I’m a winner, not a quieter”. I love doing what I do because I do it by choose because I want to and not because it’s being forced upon me to do. I’m always open to new opportunities in the dance scene . I want to do more or better for myself to help me grow culturally and mentally. I like to collaborate with everyone, doesn’t matter the project I can see what I can do to help because as an entrepreneur I know how it is or how it feels to be ignored or not helped so I’m open to any new ideas/projects!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Dallas is a beautiful city to go on late night drives. Scenery in white rock lake is also a must go at night. Places I recommend if you love tacos is “OMG TACOS”, “PAISANOS” & “LA SALSA VERDE”
Some of the activities I say are fun is taking street wear photography at the fabrication yard, going sneaker shopping, finding a good outfit to match it with and going to the pool with a hot tub!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to give a hug shout out to my mom (Patricia Sanchez) for being my number one fan. We call eachother almost everyday and she is the reason I am where I am because I want to be the one to make her proud. She sets an example of the woman I want to become. I’m proud of how far she went for us so I want to do the same for her.

Brandon & Heather Forgy play a huge role in my life for the numerous amount of support they have given me. They were there when I needed them the most. I consider them as family.

Natalie Gonzales my best friend. She has supported me through out my life in many ways. She’s like my sister to me and she has been there and knows me more than anyone else I know. We don’t talk every day but we know we have our backs any time of the day. She has shown me what a true friend is.

Last but not lease I wanna thank myself for not giving up in the rough moments, for being fearless, strong & humble through it all. It was a tough journey but I don’t regret anything.
