Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world... shoes? Give a girl education, opportunities, wisdom, knowledge, love, guidance, support. Give a girl the right teacher, give her hope for the future and feed her ambition. Help her get stronger so she can conquer her dreams. Give her tools so she can achieve more than what she’s ever dreamt of. Give this girl a safe environment so she is confident. Explain to her that things require patience and effort. Give this girl a suitcase so she can conquer the world, but let your doors open so she knows she can always come back home.
