Hi, guys!
In this video, I am taking you along for my birthday where I got a new tattoo of the motto of Pratt Institute, where I went to art school. In 1888, at the first Founders Day celebration at Pratt Institute of Art; Charles Pratt, founder of the school, addressed what would become the school’s motto: “Be true to your work and your work will be true to you.” meaning that students should educate and develop themselves diligently and go out into the world working hard, giving all of themselves.
