Written by Cardozie Jones, CEO & Founder
Legacy can have different meanings for each of us, but for most people, it's important to know that they have made some sort of impact on the world, whether big or small. While we may each be, as Elton John sings, a candle in the wind, I truly believe most of us seek to provide warmth and light to the people we care most about. Some of us choose careers, families, and missions that we hope leave some impression of who we were during our lifetime. As the third Cardozie of my name, legacy has always been extremely important to me. As a Black man, this feeling of legacy is compounded by gratitude and, at times, pressure—not going to lie—for those who came before me. I exist because of those who sacrificed and survived trauma and brutality of a different kind of legacy.
