"Courage is not being free from fear, however. Courage is not allowing fear to distort your purposes and cramp your life. We all have secret fears and to deny it is to deny some essential element of our personalities. But if you can do one thing for your children, show them bravery, so that they learn bravery themselves. For courage is the wellspring from which an authentic life flows."

Smart Girls, what does bravery look like to you? How do you summon bravery? http://ow.ly/NH3Mu

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's an anxiety attack! Sometimes it's hard to identify when it's happening. Here's how one Smart Girl learned to cope.

It's 8AM and my heart's racing. It's that terrible, full-body sort of beat that makes your whole body shake and occasionally flutters from time to time from over-stimulation. For a second it almost feels like excitement, until the belly flips start, my face heats up, and my neck starts to hurt and I feel a little dizzy. My breathing's heavy and my palms and scalp are starting to sweat for reasons unbeknownst to me. If this were 29-year-old Alicia...

"Maeda holds dual Japanese and American citizenship and speaks Japanese fluently. She's also one of the few -- very few -- Asian-American women in surfing, and in action sports in general, so she tries hard to balance both Japanese and American culture in her life."

Seventeen-year-old Mahina Maeda is only the second woman to take on the extreme waves of Nazare -- and one of the few Asian-American women at the highest levels of the sport.

"I’m not as strong as I’d like to be but I’m still going to try. I’m just going to walk real fast and then run some, and just try not to wear myself down too fast."

"One of my roles is to tell the world that they are very strong women, indeed living in very challenging conditions, showing a lot of resilience, a lot of resourcefulness, and that they need to be recognized for that, not for their weakness -- their alleged weakness."

Afghanistan's first lady has broken numerous conventions in a society that traditionally sequesters women behind closed doors — speaking out on issues such as violence against women, the rule of law and the power of religion. But perhaps Rula Ghani's biggest taboo breaker is simply being the country's first presidential spouse in decades to be seen and heard in public.
