Malala Yousafzai's story begins with her parents being commiserated with
after producing a baby girl. In their part of northern Pakistan, she
says, rifle shots ring out in celebration of a baby boy's arrival. But
there is no such fanfare for females: their destiny is to cook and
clean, to be neither seen nor heard... So how did Malala, who barely
warranted a mention in her family's genealogy, become destined for the
history books as a powerful symbol for girls' universal right to an
education? Her memoir I AM MALALA tells us how.
This memoir brings out her best qualities. You can only admire her courage and determination. Her thirst for education and reform appear genuine. She also has an air of innocence, and there is an indestructible confidence. She speaks with such poise that you forget Malala is 16.
Her story is astonishing.
The medical team that saved Malala; her own stoicism and resilience; the support of her family, now, again in exile, this time in Birmingham; Malala's level-headed resolve to continue to champion education and children's rights- these are all powerful reminders of the best in human nature. Much of the money Malala has been awarded has gone to the Malala fund (www.malalafund.org). "Please join my mission," she asks. It's vital that those of us who can, do.
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price when she was shot in the head at point-blank range.
Malala Yousafzai's extraordinary journey has taken her from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations. She has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and is the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
The bestselling memoir of NOBEL PRIZE winner, Malala Yousafzai, the school girl who stood up to the Taliban. I AM MALALA inspired the BAFTA-nominated film HE NAMED ME MALALA, directed by Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim.
