Build a Better You Challenge: Dream

Build A Better You Challenge: Dream

This year, Fight For Life is excited to announce the “Build A Better You Challenge” that incorporates our Building Dreams program with Jack and Jill Magazine! In this new series, Marlin Jackson sets out the building blocks that students need in order to live the life they want. As someone who grew up in humble circumstances and was able to overcome a broken home and drug-fueled neighborhood, Marlin knows all about what it takes to fight for a better life.

In the sixth issue, Marlin teaches readers about the importance of having a dream, sharing a personal story of growing up, Marlin shared that his very first dream was to play football like his big brother. Marlin shares, “The inspiration he provided instilled the passion and drive that directed me toward my dream. It helped me understand the importance of having dreams.” Marlin w learned that what it actually takes to reach a dream – belief, mindset, self-discipline, work ethic, and the assistance of others. All these things can lead to anyone reaching their dream.

We’re asking our readers 1. What is your dream? and 2. How will coach Marlin’s winning strategies (Courage, Morals, Financial Literacy, Trust, and Nonviolence) help you build your dream?

Readers have a chance to win an NFL jersey of their choice and will automatically receive a signed photo from Marlin by reading the article, downloading the attached PDF and mailing the filled out essay questions to:
