But through all of these, they learn the art of survival, thrive on these ups and downs confronting their fears, chasing their dreams while holding on to their true, unique selves. Tears, joys, first loves, first jobs, first failures – picking themselves up with a smile after every fall, emerging as today’s strong & independent women.
