Who run the world? Girls. Obviously.
From the Queen of England to Queen Bey, it's pretty obvious that girls are total badasses and forces to be reckoned with. We are so much more than pretty faces and exceptional hair, we also own/run companies and businesses, are creators and innovators and also sign some paycheques... all while looking incredibly good while doing it. All in a day's work. *hairflip*
