So many of the folks we work with have multidimensional stories. They often aren’t just working on a single project, business or mission – instead they are often involved in so many things all at once and so we often wonder about what they themselves hope their legacy will be about. We’ve shared some of their responses with you below.

Meagan Lawler | Adventure Elopement Photographer

When I think about legacy, I think about pulling out a box of 5×7 prints that had been tucked away for a few years. Looking through them, remembering the people and the life that was lived in that image. The ones of your first steps, or playing in your backyard, or hanging out with your grandparents. It’s not about the epic locations or the perfect house that makes those photos special, but the moments, the timelessness, and the legacy. Read more>>

Idrissa Camara | Creative Director of Original Ugly- the world’s most eyeconic brand

When it is all set and done, I want people to remember me as an individual who loved and cared deeply for everyone. I am for love, I am for kindness, and I am for inclusivity. We are all created equal and no one human being is better than another. I want people to remember me as an individual who deliberately went out of his way to spread positivity as much as he could. I am going to help as many people as humanly possible. And god willing, raise a family that will continue with that trend. Read more>>

The Kentucky Gentlemen | Country Music Duo

As The Kentucky Gentlemen, we want our legacy to show that you can fearlessly achieve anything you set your mind to and work for, while simultaneously being exactly who you are. We believe the music we create is exactly that. This world has a way of doing its best to put you in categories. We want our legacy to show there are no bounds that you can’t reach once you defy that mindset. We want to be remembered as a people of courage, confidence and self motivation. Most importantly, we want to be remembered as people who chose to follow our own path and that path led to us achieving our dreams. Read more>>

Lindsey Higo | Rocky Mountain Chado Founding Member & Urasenke Tea Practitioner

Speaking for myself I would say creating a welcoming community. I think it’s so vastly important that in doing the work to practice and preserve anything you love, in my case a traditional cultural art you always keep a link to community members and future generations. An active community is the legacy we are striving for. A group that continues to thrive after myself and other founding members are gone. Creating something that is welcoming, holds space for all types of learners and members and remains active no matter who is at the helm is what I want to leave behind. Read more>>

isaac lipan | Musician and Digital Creator

Overall I want to be remembered as an advocate for open source knowledge. I truly believe through the decentralization of technology and information we will continue to expedite growth and human innovation. If there is anything I want people to think about after witnessing my work it’s that opportunity and circumstance should never stand in the way of a person trying to learn and create. Read more>>
