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.

Shaunique Jones | Wardrobe Stylist

As I have gotten older and understood the value of legacy, I realized that what I do here on Earth is about the generations I’m called to and the ones that will come from and after me. I would love to leave a legacy of wealth. Wealth in terms of enjoying life to the fullest. Enjoying those who I love dearly, being a great resource to others in need, and loving people the correct way. In the past I have struggled with how people perceive me so I chose this question to challenge my fear. I would want people to remember that I am human so it made me a humanitarian. I want people to remember that I feel, so I sympathize and empathize well. I want people to remember that I’ve made mistakes so judgment doesn’t live here. I want people to remember that standing up was the best decision I made when my thoughts and fears tried to talk me out of success. Read more>>

Dhemari Jernigan | Atlanta Freelance Photographer

That’s a good question. For me I always tell people it’s never been about me I’m trying to help some people. Growing up I always see that kid get joked on that never had it as good as the next and I never like seeing that. I made it pretty clear through my whole life and said to myself whenever I get the chance to help somebody or can give information to better somebody I will do it. I guess I just want to be remember as a good person that had great energy and was fun to be around and always was finding a way to help out or put people in the right spot. I lost a lot of friends and family grown up and the two that meant the most to me growing up my grandma and grandpa. They always told me make something out myself and that I was smart and could do and be whatever I want to be, so I’m just trying to make them proud of me. My Mom tells me the same and my dad so I keep a smile on my face and wake up and be the best person I can be. Read more>>

I want people to remember that I fought hard to improve the health (and wellness) of women. I want people to remember that I was a fiery, passion filled advocate for improving maternal and infant mortality rates in Georgia. I want people to remember me as the holistic birth worker who would support her clients and help them find their way to health. Read more>>

Dr. LaTarsha Holden | Inspirational Speaker, Author & Empowerment Coach

I want my legacy to be one of love, compassion and service to mankind. I believe what we do for others will last throughout eternity. I believe when we display love and compassion to others we are vibrating at a higher level. I want people to remember that I gave everything I could to encourage, inspire and give hope to those who found themselves in a dark sunken place. I want them to remember that every opportunity I had to serve, I took it with delight and joy that I got to walk with the broken and those in despair. Read more>>
