Malala’s Fight For Education
In 2012, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai made headlines around the world when she was brutally attacked on a bus after becoming a recognizable figure in Pakistan in the fight for girls’ rights to education. She recovered from the ordeal and released her autobiography I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban.
Malala hasn’t let the attack slow her down. She continues to champion for girls to have safe and equal access to education through talks with world leaders and other speaking engagements. She also established the Malala Fund to help further her cause and build a school for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
