"He Named Me Malala" is a powerful trailer of Malala Yousafzai’s documentary who was targeted by the Taliban. She was awarded Nobel Peace prize, who was attacked by a gun at the age of 15, just because she wanted to study.
When returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, a gunman asked for her by name, then pointed a pistol at her and fired three shots. She survived and now is a Pakistani activist for female education. She is a leading campaigner for girls where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school.
Malala is a co-founder of the Malala Fund and is the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. She is known for human rights advocacy for education.
