"Let us wage a glorious struggle against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism, let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution" - Malala Yousafzai.
Malala Yousafzai opposed the Taliban in Pakistan and necessitated that girls be allowed to acquire education. She was only 15 years old when she was shot in the head by a Taliban thug in 2012 but survived. Blessings of people showed up strength and proved that God helps those who help themselves.
Here we have compiled some facts about Malala which you must know.
In 2009, Malala started blogging about surviving under Taliban rule for the BBC under a pseudonym. She later became a national character in her country, arriving on television as a spokesperson for girls' education.
She has been living in England since being treated for her gunshot wounds with her family. But she wanted to go back to her nation and wanted to continue her fight. She misses her friends. She also stated in one interview that her mates in Birmingham treat her like the Malala Yousafzai and she being missed as Malala.
Ziauddin Yousafzai is an activist and ran one of the last schools to oppose the Taliban's orders not to educate girls. He has reportedly supported his daughter to be outspoken from a young age. When no one was ready to write about the conditions of what they were suffering, he picked his daughter, and she started her blog on BBC Urdu. I am sure if one has the father like him; every girl can be a Malala.
Since her enhanced clarity, Malala has changed her career focus to politics.
"I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World" was published in the United States in August 2014 and is a #1 seller on Amazon.
Malala was going home after her exams by a school bus in 2012 when the two Taliban thugs reportedly stopped the bus and asked who is Malala and separated her out, shooting her in the head and the neck.
Malala was one out of 100 most powerful personalities in the world, from artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons in 2013 and was the person of the year 2014 on TIME Magazine.
Malala is the secondary Pakistani to win a Nobel prize and the only Pakistani recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. At the age of 17, Malala is the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Malala will be dividing the prize money, $1.1 million, with her 60-year-old co-winner, Kailash Satyarthi, a human rights advocate from India.
She addressed "the right to education of every child" on July 12th, 2013.
She is now educating a number of girls and want every child whether it is a girl or a boy to be taught. And if she can why you can't? Raise your voice against every sinful act and hopefully, you will be a change, you want to see in this world.
