I want girls to look at me and think they can achieve anything they want,' says 17-year-old Rani, from Varanasi, India. Her family has been destined to wash clothing by the caste culture of their society. But growing up in a community that believes girls should stay at home, do chores, and get married, doesn't stop her. Rani is determined to finish school and go to college. As we follow Rani in her journey as a Girl Icon, she gives us an intimate glimpse of her hopes, frustrations, and dreams.
