This is part four in my Women’s History month series and the last question I asked my dope friends.
I saved the best for last. I asked them what kind of impact did they want to leave on the world and although I’ve said it before my friends are ah-mazing.
Side note: Everything they said they wanted to leave… if you know them, they are already doing it.
Check out the impacts they want to (and already are) leaving on the world. I’m blessed to know them.
“I’m still young and figuring out what my footprint will be on this world. But if I could help just one female/person of color/chubby and cute chica, etc. through something that I’ve struggled with personally, I would be happy. Also, if I could help one person know the love of God through my life or actions, I would be humbled by that impact too.” – Angie
“Know that you are planting seeds for a tree whose shade you might never feel. I try to operate with this perspective in mind. I realized that my purpose is bigger than me. God has put me here to help others along their journey. To help them prosper and succeed. I know that ultimately I might not see or experience their wins, but knowing that I possibly helped plant those seeds is enough for me.” – Brittany
“As cheesy as it may sound I want to leave the world a better place than it was when I got here.” – Carmen
“I don’t have to make an impact on the world, but I would like to mean the world to a couple of people. I somehow find people who just need an ear to listen, and it turns out I am built for that. That’s good enough for me to help someone in some way because I was there when somebody was needed.” - Kellie
“The impact that I want to leave on the world is that I was kind, I followed my heart, stayed positive and I never missed an opportunity. I want to experience everything, good, and bad that God has for me and I believe that I am beginning to live my best life and you should too. It’s alright to be afraid sometimes, but if you never try or do it how will leave lasting memories.” - Kina
“I would like to inspire other women of color to go into marketing and make strides in corporate America leadership positions. I would also like to leave this world a little bit better by inspiring young girls that they are not limited by their gender and can achieve and be anything.” – Leigh
“I want God to bless someone through me, and I want that ripple to change generations. If I can do that and hear Him say, “well, done” then I’ve done my job.” - Neysa
“I would hope my greatest impact would be showing women that they are empowered and can have a life at any age. As long as you’re still breathing, possibilities are endless. There is no age limit on having the life you dreamed of.” – Nicole
“I want to be known as an encourager, passion chaser, and difference maker. All of those verbs require action, and that's the legacy I want to leave. If you want to see change, you must pursue it. It's not going to fall in your lap. May I never settle for the path of least resistance, but champion others to chase their dreams wholeheartedly and break barriers.” – Sarah
“I believe God put me here to change the world. When I first realized that was my purpose, I thought wow, that's a big task, and I was a bit afraid I wouldn't be able to fulfill it. As I've gotten older, I realize you don't have to do grand gestures to change the world. I try to spread love and light throughout the world while also doing my fair share of good deeds. My goal is to leave the world a better place the day I leave than it was the day I arrived.” – Sheena
I hope you have enjoyed reading each of these and that my friends helped motivate and inspire you in some way.
We as women are a force to be reckoned with. We deserve more than a month for all of our greatness. We can do anything we set our mind to and every woman I know does amazing things daily.
Let’s continue to be great because we all know it’s the Year of the Woman.
Thanks so much for reading…the final post in this series is coming at the end of the week so stay tuned…it’s my favorite.
