Inspiring Change: Scholarship Recipient Shares What 'Outlive Yourself' Means To Her

This post is written by Allison Lipovsky, a Taylor's Gift Scholarship recipient. 

My parents have always taught me that if you do good for others that good things will come to you. Our family followed this tradition through donating my uncle’s organs after he passed away.  Although it was recently his birthday, it is comforting to know that he continues to live on by helping the lives of others for many years to come.

I try to live my life by this motto either at school or in my community. I always try to make a lasting impact on the lives of the people I interact with on a daily basis. This is what I believe "Outlive Yourself" means, as well as the inspiring decision to be an organ donor.

I have worked to do a lot of good within my local community and have to volunteered at several local food distribution centers. I also participated in and helped create a program called “Strike Out for Hunger”, which raises money for organizations that help feed individuals in need through asking for contributions for every strike a pitcher makes in a game. The program has raised thousands of dollars for local charities and is expanding to other local schools. After the first year, I involved pitchers throughout the area to participate and I believe they will continue to help this program grow. Through this cause, I believe this is one way that I am outliving myself.

On A Mission To Inspire: How I Learned What 'Outlive Yourself' Meant To Me

This post is written by Christopher Zhou, a Taylor's Gift Scholarship recipient. 

For the past three weeks, my living room has been an Olympics-level obstacle course. Clothes lie scattered in various piles around the room. All manners of household appliances hide in the countless nooks and crannies made by other appliances. The floorboard, barely visible, is obscured by a thick membrane of household objects. This sight is the result of my packing for the coming semester, and it serves as a silent reminder that a chapter in my life has ended. As I scramble to prepare myself for the impending school year, I cannot help but think about what I want to accomplish in the eight semesters that I’ll have at Yale. I’ve decided to keep two words as the guiding philosophy for what I want to accomplish: “Outlive Yourself”.

To me, “Outliving Yourself” means doing just that: to create a legacy that will endure long after you pass away. By making contributions to the world and helping people, one can live on forever in the memories of those who were impacted. This is the kind of legacy I want to leave behind—to play a positive role in the recovery of the patients I will one day serve would bring me a satisfaction that few other endeavors possibly could. It is with this mindset that I embrace the “Outlive Yourself” philosophy.
