Death Cafe profile for Anna Simpson
About Anna Simpson:
I am a 23 year old future funeral director/embalmer who is passionate about having honest conversations about death and meeting people where they are in their death positivity journey.

What would you like your legacy to be?
I would like to be remembered by my family as an avid lover of animals, passionate about my career, and an all-around strong and wise woman.
By the rest of the world, I want to be remembered as someone who had the courage to come forward and speak against the aspects of the funeral industry that seek to profit from grief - I want to be remembered as someone who pushed and advocated for dynamic and much-needed changes.
Thoughts for sharing:
