DREAM BIG, WORK HARD, MAKE IT HAPPEN
These seven simple words - dream big, work hard, make it happen - have been at the forefront of my mind this week. I don’t know whether it’s because of the sentiment of a brand new year, but I’ve been feeling super motivated to dream a little bigger, work a little harder, and make things happen this year.

In classes at Likelike, teacher Kris Nakaoka said they have talked about the message in the “dream big, work hard, make it happen” Mariota posters. “We talked about each line and what it means.”
