Malala Yousafzai, is a female activist for Pakistani girls education.

On the 9th of October 2012 Malala boarded her school bus and got shot by a gunman because of her belief that there should be “A change the political system so there is justice and equality and change in the status of girls and women.”

Fortunately Malala survived the gunshot to her forehead and in 2013 was the winner of Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize.




Malala inspires me because she got shot not so that just she could have an education but so all girls can have one. As in, who would put education before their life? Malala did.

I believe she inspires all girls to follow their dreams: “They can only shoot my body, but they can’t shoot my dreams”.

All people should be allowed to have a education, and no one can stop that. I hope every person can raise their voice for Malala. I hope you can come visit my blog
