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.

Karina Dayrit | Karina Dayrit | Yoga Teacher, Singer-Songwriter, Digital Marketer

When I leave this world, I want to be remembered as someone who enjoyed life to the fullest and that I was able to share this love of being alive with others. As a woman who has an endless appetite for exploration and multiple passions in life, I find joy in seeing my students feel empowered and discover their growth potential. Apart from teaching movement and mindfulness, music is one of the tools that help me create conversations with people who may be going through a particular patch in their lives that they need to deal with. It is not so much about what I do, but how I can make them feel more human each day. Read more>>

Melanie Jade Boulerice | Registered Nurse Clinician & CEO

When I went to nursing school, we were not taught to be in business but more about the art of caring and compassion. I was always intrigued in the business component but had a hard time understanding how to implement the nursing profession. The day I was able to make that connection and bring the vision together while helping people was my proud moment, and it was nowhere close to easy or short. It took a year of research, learning and networking before I had a concrete plan to execute my mission, The challenges were overcome with being open minded about the good and the bad. Read more>>

Kendra Davis | Labor & Postpartum Doula

I used to think about this question a lot when I was younger because I always feared I’d be forgotten. I want my legacy to be one that never left anyone behind. I want my legacy to drive people to continually show compassion, serve, and love endlessly. I want my legacy to be that I loved Christ, my husband and children, my community, my clients, and those who surrounded me daily. I want people to remember that I was a kind, outgoing, and selfless individual that poured into others as I drew from Christ. I want people to remember that as scary as it was, I pursued my God given passions in faith and never looked back. Read more>>

Edwin Thanhouser | Citizen Archivist

My grandparents were pioneers in the early motion picture industry producing and releasing over 1,000 silent films from the Thanhouser Studio from 1910 to 1917. I have spent the past 30+ years researching the studio history and finding over 260 surviving films from the studio. I have established a 501(c)(3) non-profit to memorialize the studio history and distributed DVDs and online copies of the films from the studio via the website www.thanhouser.org. I have presented academic papers at multiple conferences and continue to stay engaged in the academic community to promote the history of the Thanhouser Studio, its founders, and actors and actresses who make the studio one of the pioneers in the industry.
