Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai (Malālah Yūsafzay: Urdu: ملالہ یوسفزئی‎; Pashto: ملاله یوسفزۍ[məˈlaːlə jusəf ˈzəj]; born 12 July 1997) She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Her advocacy has grown into an international movement, and according to Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, she has become "the most prominent citizen" of the country.

Malala's Autobiography to be Released

Malala Yousafzai’s story is going to be titled "I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban"

Contributed by Kathryn Vercillo

Malala Yousafzai is one the many bravest girls in the world, I would be truly grateful to even be half the women she is. Yousafzai grew up in Swat Valley, Pakistan and raised in a Muslim society, at the time her town was overruled by the Taliban, where they discourage girls to attend school with threats. She has an ambitious father, who is a teacher and school owner, he provided her the best education he can. Her father was not like the regular Muslim fathers who believed that a woman’s role is to stay home, to cook and clean. He encouraged Yousafzai to speak her mind and to enhance her knowledge in education to someday become someone great. Yousafzai and her father are known to be educational and women’s rights activists, they have received many threat letters from the Taliban but that didn't discourage them from teaching. On October 9, 2012, Yousafzai was riding in a school bus to go home with many of her classmates, a Taliban stopped the bus and struck a bullet towards Yousafzai’s head through her left shoulder. Yousafzai was later taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, England, doctors weren't sure if Yousafzai would ever speak or walk again, but she prove them wrong, some people actually can’t believe that she survived the shot, Yousafzai was finally discharged on January 3, 2013. Yousafzai wants to sent out a message to the Taliban that a bullet won’t keep her quiet, she will continue to prompt education and women’s rights. Yousafzai have received a long list of awards and honors from around the world for her determined and courageous acts. For her sixteenth birthday, she got to speak what’s on her mind about education at the UN in front of thousands of people. Yousafzai has encouraged millions of people all over the world to stand up with her. So let's stand with her to prompt education and women's right. In school I've seen many students who don't value education, they think that it's "dumb or not cool", it makes me mad and angry because there are people like Malala, who would love to take advantage to earn a good education but they can't.
