I AM Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot By The Taliban
By: Malala Yousafzai
I Am Malala is a powerful book that has now been made into a movie. HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
“There’a a moment when you have to choose to be silent or stand up” As stated in the trailer below, in her story BRAVERY MADE HER A TARGET…COURAGE MADE HER A HERO.
