    Malala stood up for girls being able to go to school in Pakistan.

    Malala was born in on July 12th 1997 in the Swat Valley of Pakistan. Her short lifetime has encompassed devastating changes in her country as it has been transformed from a once peaceful land to a land of Islamic extremism. The Taliban have said Malala, who now lives in Birmingham, England, will be killed if she returns home. But she says she has been given a second life that she intends to use for the good of the people and her dream that all girls everywhere deserve an education. The gunman walked up to the truck asked for Malala and promptly shot here in the head.
    She is now the youngest person to ever receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

  6. Jess

    Who is she?

    Malala is a teenage girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban wanting to go to school and get an education. A little bit later on in her life, she wrote a really inspiring speech explaining why girls deserve an education.

    What does she stand for?

    She stood for all the girls in Pakistan (including herself) who wanted to go to school and get an education.

    Do I support her beliefs?

    100% yes because girls should be allowed to get an education and feel safe and happy. In my opinion, I think it’s sexist that only boys are allowed to go to school over there, and as a girl I think that’s really terrible, cruel and unfair.

    My favorite quote in that video is

    “Malala day,is not my day. Today is the day, of every woman, every boy, and every girl, who have raised their voice, for their rights.”

    Because she’s saying that it’s a day not about just her, but also about all the other education activists who stood up to the Taliban and fought for what they believed.

    “Be peaceful and love everyone”

    ” Malala Day is not my day it is the day for every woman every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights”

  30. K13R4N Y34735

    ” Malala Day is not my day it is the day for every woman every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights”

    I like it how Malala is taking no credit for what she has done and giving the credit to the people that supported her.
