SK-II has teamed up with gymnast Farah Ann, singer Yuna, actors Awal Ashaari and Aaron Aziz, YouTuber Jinnyboy and beauty queen Soo Wincci to encourage Malaysians, young and old, to dream big.

The cosmetics brand conducted its first Global Dreams Index Survey in May 2016 and found that more than half of the women surveyed have given up on their dreams and are merely settling for the lives they have now, with little or no satisfaction. In Malaysia, six out of 10 women said they did not pursue their dreams and are not satisfied with their lives. The reasons given for this were limited financial support and the fear of leaving their comfort zone.

"To my fans and fellow teammates, continue to dream big, always believe in yourself and never give up in pursuing your dreams," Farah Ann said. "It is very important to have a goal and to accomplish that goal. Always remember, it is never too late for you to achieve your dreams."

Yuna's thoughts echoed that sentiment: "Remember, never give up on your dreams. We have no idea what the future holds for us but the only thing that really stops us from achieving our dreams is ourselves. Continue to dream big and word hard, you never know what life has in store for you."

Watch SK-II's Dream Again video, in which a group of Japanese women are asked questions about their dreams; they are later taken by surprise when it is revealed that the questions came from a group of little girls, who hid behind the scenes throughout the interview. It's beautiful to see how children are so determined when it comes to pursuing their dreams – something we adults need to remember, too.
