I'm like a broken record
I will remind you again and again ans again: DFTBA! DFTBA! DFTBA!
I will remind you often, so that you will remind yourself once you've left our class.
DFTBA is an initialism coined by the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green, referencing a reminder written on a friend's arm: Don't Forget To Be Awesome.
Through their YouTube channel and other online media, the Vlogbrothers have created a community dedicated to being "made of awesome" and decreasing what they call world suck.
Among their many accomplishments, in 2007 the Vlogbrothers initiated the annual YouTube Project for Awesome, a weekend of YouTubers uploading videos promoting charities. We'll be taking a look at this project as a model of persuasive writing.
Whether it be as a student, a family member, or a citizen of the world, keep asking yourself, "How will I be awesome today?"
These folks are made of awesome
