I Am Malala

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban - Malala Yousafzai,  With Christina Lamb

Malala is an inspiration to girls around the world. She was just an ordinary teenage girl who stood up to the Taliban to fight for her (and all the other girls) right to go to school. She was shot for speaking out but she survived. Now her message is being spread around the world.


Malala's story really made me think about all the opportunities I have that I take for granted. As a woman living in America I have so much freedom and so many opportunities. Malala wasn't as fortunate as me and it was absolutely eye-opening reading her book. Reading this allowed me to see what it was like for girls like Malala and to put myself in their shoes.


I would highly recommend that all woman and girls read this book. I would also suggest that this become required reading for high school students.
