“I tell my story not because it is unique but because it is the story of many girls.” Malala.
She was born in Mingora, Pakistan, in 1997. She is bright and brave, confident, and stands for the welfare of the women. It’s her dream to motivate every woman worldwide to study and work hard and be independent.
She is fond of her happiness in school and education. But, things turned upside down when the Taliban took control of their valley. They announce that girls are no longer allowed to go to school. Malala stood for herself and her girls and spoke about fighting for their rights publicly.
In October 2012, when she was coming back from school, a masked gunman shot her on the left side of her head. She was taken to Birmingham and was unconscious for ten days. After she recovered, she decided to make the most of her life. With the help of her father, she established the Malala Fund. In 2014, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. Here are some amazing books authored by Malala Yousafzai.
