“Trailblazer,” represents the courage of individuals who are the pioneers of their own life and inspire others along the way. Without Channapha’s initial steps in creating Legacies, our organization would not be here today.
This collaboration between Legacies and ARTICLE22 represents a power that each and every one of us holds. Whether you are a man or woman, each and every one of us has the power to have an impact on someone’s life.
Who is your inspiration? Who is your “Trailblazer?”
