Here is a scenario of two girls.
The first girl has access—to a smartphone, strong education systems, and routine health exams— and thus, access to the potential of a healthy life.
The second girl lives in a slum and is lucky to have one good meal per day. She does not have access to proper sanitation, misses school when she menstruates, and has a very high chance of becoming pregnant before she finishes secondary school. She was born into a scenario which has isolated her from choice and control over her personal well-being.
