Robert Frost penned a famous poem entitled “The Road Not Taken.” In its opening lines, he wrote, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, / And sorry I could not travel both.” This sentiment describes the complexity of determining what one would consider the best and correct path for their future.

Today, definitions are more nuanced based on experience and expectations. T.

The year is 2016, and behind a syncopated instrumental, you hear the clarion call: “Who run the world?” And the emphatic answer is “Girls!” Fast forward five years, and the answer remains the same.
