From the Publisher
Young Malala went to school from a very young age, attending class with older kids. By age 5, she was reading. This love of reading persisted throughout her childhood and into adulthood. It allowed her to explore the world, while having so few opportunities at home in Pakistan.
Education for All
The Taliban wanted Malala's father to stop teaching girls at his school, something that was all but forbidden. They wanted girls to be quiet, but instead, Malala fought back and spoke up on behalf of thousands of girls about the importance of education.
Even after Malala was shot by a Taliban member, she continued advocating for free education for girls everywhere. She received dozens of letters from people around the world who admired her persistence and dedication to the cause.
Use Your Voice!
Malala became the youngest person to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize. She uses her increased platform to advocate for 130 million girls around the world via her Malala Fund. She knows that the world doesn't change unless you speak up.
