Gwen Webber-McLeod was recently featured in Living Legacies, a publication by the Central New York Community Foundation.
What kind of ancestor will you be? For Gwendolyn (Gwen) Webber-McLeod, this is the central question that has guided her in her current era of legacy-building and a question she encourages everyone to consider. Gwen does not think of legacy as something that comes later; instead, she believes it is defined by the actions that you take over the course of your lifetime.
“I want to be known as a woman whose every step, every breath, left a gentle impression of good in the world,” said Gwen. “And I am already being remembered the way I want to be. This is evidence my legacy is in action.”
