A memoir of a truly inspirational woman.
‘I am Malala’ is truly an inspiring real-life story. After reading this recently i realised how bad these countries were, how because people were and still not educated, they did not know right from wrong so assumed the rules in pakistan were like any other country, that treating women this way was ‘normal’. so many people believe it is the beliefs that make terrorists but most muslims, like Malala, do not believe in the extremism and violence. In fact she campaigns for the opposite.
I believe that Education is so important for people to build careers and achieve their dreams no matter how big or small they might be. Malala is a true inspiration to everyone, for a young girl to have the courage to speak out for what she believes in even though she went against authority and knew there could be consequences.it also shows the power of the media, without the publicity anyone outside of the effected countries would know of the terror in Pakistan and surrounding countries. It is awful that Malala could almost have been killed for speaking out for her right for education and her memoir spreads the word. A truly inspirational woman.
There is also a film of the book ‘He name me Malala’ release in November last year (2015) which i would love to see. Malala still has ambitions and continues to campaign with the Malala fund.
