Build A Better You Challenge: Trust

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 fourth issue, Marlin teaches readers about the importance of trust, sharing a personal story of growing up in an environment that taught him it wasn’t safe to trust and that trusting the wrong people lead to heartache and pain. Marlin shares, “I learned to trust in what people do and not in what they say. Actions always speak the loudest. Observing someone’s actions will show you their truth. It’s much safer believing in the honesty that you see consistently.”

We’re asking our readers 1. What does TRUST mean to you? and 2. How do you show Trust at home, in school, or in your community?

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:
