“Building a legacy leaves a mark and helps to shape a better world, which down the line impacts society. Such is an act of selflessness as we consider the fate and outcome of our future generations, rather than ourselves in the present.
I believe it is every person’s responsibility to leave behind a legacy before we leave this world. A legacy helps keep people connected and it leaves something for us to be remembered by.”
