Is it weird to be motivated by your last name?
The Cushman name has a distinguished lineage and we trace our name to Robert Cushman who helped organize the Mayflower. I’m adopted so I only take partial pride, but I am proud of my last name that I was given by my father who is a very distinguished man in and of himself.
Whenever I pass a Cushman and Wakefield sign I feel a hint of pride. It makes me proud to know some Cushmans out there are doing something big and not only making golf carts, although whoever is making those damn carts is probably balling.
I’ll never make the last name Ahn famous and I have no desire to. Fuck that guy, whoever my father was. I don’t need him and that’s how bastards live. Because we are bastards we look for pride where we can find it and any bastard in history will probably share this same mindset with me.
We are who we are.
We are what we make ourselves.
