Homework Help: physics

You are in a hot-air balloon that ascends at a constant velocity of 2.00 m/s. When the ballon is 1000 meters in the air you jump out of it what speed will you hit the ground with? neglect air resistance.

I know we use the conservation of mechanical energy to solve this my question is will my initial velocity be 2.00 m/s or will it be zero because i am at rest in the ballon.
