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.

Jesse Zmuda | Floral Designer – Vintage Curator

I’d like to be remembered as someone who lived life full of love, compassion, and empathy. That I loved taking risks and always stayed true to myself. That when I designed florals, I did it with care and put my heart into my work. Most of all that being a mother was my life’s greatest accomplishment and nothing came before my daughter. I’d hope to be known for being a good daughter, granddaughter, sister, partner, and friend. Read more>>

Pascale Kourie | Content Creator & Student

Life is short but it is most definitely a beautiful journey that we all embark on. Each life has a different path filled with many different memories, moments, obstacles, and hardships. I always say that everything happens for a reason because adversity makes you stronger and makes you understand and appreciate all of life’s twists and turns. I want to leave a strong legacy behind. I want to be the kind of woman that touches hearts and helps others flourish and grow. Each and every heart I encounter, I want to imprint my kindness, compassion and love in them. Another life goal of mine is to be a successful businesswoman and eventually a loving wife and mother. Upon graduating from college, I hope to start a thriving career in the real estate industry. After a few years, I hope to settle down and start a family with my future significant other. Being a mother will be fulfilling for me because I will be able to share my life experiences, instill morals and create life long memories with my future children and husband. If I get to the end of my life and realize that I played it safe because I was too afraid to fail, I will be disappointed. Read more>>

Lindsey King | Hair Stylist and Founder of a Non-Profit

Since I was a young girl, I have had this sense of pressure to do more, and be more, which is a challenge I’ve realized many women face, a sense of insecurity we are not “enough”. Because of this pressure I felt to be something BIG, I thought for a long time that my direction would be fame. I was clearly destined to be a rockstar, right? But, as life would have it, I took a very different path which led me to a new and even better direction. While all of my life I wanted to be remembered for something, to be a person who leaves a mark on this world, I no longer yearned for fame, but rather wished to leave my mark by helping those in need by starting a non-profit. I wanted to build some thing to help others, to create a safe space, encourage, motivate and lift up other women. This all stems from my career as a hairstylist the past 11 years. I absolutely love being behind the chair every day. I feel so lucky that I get to be creative and my clients trust me with not just their hairstyle, but also their personal lives. Over the years, I get to learn about their careers, families, children, yet also their struggles and hardships. Read more>>

Paris Barrowclough | Yoga Instructor & Wild Woman

I have this friend, she’s more like family we’ve known each other so long. One day she said to me that I am good at listening to people without judging, mostly because I’ve lived so many types of lives in this one go-round. I think that would be a great legacy to leave. That I was a human who gave other humans the space to be themselves without judgement. In yoga we talk quite a bit about stepping back into the role of observer. We watch the breath, where it falls naturally and where we can guide it. We talk about meeting ourselves and others where we are that day. All of this is about being free from judgement. We all do the best we can with the tools we have in the moment. I want to be remembered as the type of woman who would share my tools I’ve picked up along the way. Others may take what they need, when they need it. Read more>>
