A bridge is a perfect vehicle for progress,as it propels one forward with unbounded strength from one place to another. Every individual journeys through life by crossing them.
Bridges are pathways to the undiscovered- a place of limitless joy, or of lurking danger.
Every single day is marked by bridges waiting to be built, traversed or burnt. However, all of those things require courage, for the unknown is terrifying.
Today, women are bold and empowered. They craft new bridges and traverse them in their tireless search for success.
