I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

Malala often began to feel afraid when on the streets, imagining that every man she met was a member of the Taliban. Malala expressed her love for God, for her people and for the right to education - time and time again. I, however, was very pleased. Malala Yousafzai became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, which she was awarded in 2014. She comes across as a charming mixture of serious and light-hearted, mature and child-like, loyal to her heritage, but open to other ideas and influences.

She is now 12 years old, although everybody is living in too much turmoil to mark her birthday in the way they always had. However, I lost interest and courage to do so when everything in our society turns out to be so powerful that I could be run over. We must be proud of her and listen her carefully since we have a young hero towards whom we can point our children to look-up to. I am not alone in these perception, everyone share them here. A história de Malala, toca-nos, revolta-nos, inspira-nos.

Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis. Seeing an opportunity to seize power, with weapons in their hands, they took it. While reading this, I realized that being an American woman is such a privilege. Its not a great book so comparisons with Anne Frank's diary are perhaps out of proportion. This has been on my reading list for a long time and I'm glad to have finally read it.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

چراکه من چندین بار صحبتهای این دختر را شنیده ام، او حتی سخن گفتن عادی را نیز به سختی انجام میدهد، هیچ از مسائل ادبی و نویسندگی و حتی نقد نمیداند، چه برسد به آنکه کتاب و زندگینامه بنویسد. This is a metaphor for the similarities and differences of the army and Taliban. The section has 8 chapters, and is over a third of the book. Even moderates dislike her for symbolising bad aspects of their country, and think her hypocritical for living in greater comfort abroad as if it were her choice. They have announced a date in 2009, by which all girls' schools must be closed, yet Malala keeps hoping that something will prevent this.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

Tl;dr - I really enjoyed this - if only because I felt like I learned a lot from it. Unfortunately, the Taliban still considers Yousafzai a target, although Yousafzai remains a staunch advocate for the power of education. In the meantime she wrote a letter to God, and sent it down the Swat river. In April 2017, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appointed Yousafzai as a U. As the passage says, both the army and the Taliban were powerful, but had different motivation.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

To be honest, teenagers aren't usually good writers. I admire her courage and her tenacity, and also hope that her country will one day find peace. She is now a world-wide icon after she was shot point blank by the Taliban and survived. There she remained unconscious, in a critical condition. Born on July 12, 1997, Yousafzai became an advocate for girls' education when she herself was still a child, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.

Immediately following the attack, she was rushed to Swat Central Hospital. I listened to this on audio, and the prologue of this is read by Malala herself. When I almost died it was just after midday. As opposed to the official stance, the people of Swat never left their homes when Talibans were in control, as a matter of fact, they were 'forced' to leave when army started the operation by the army. Malala is fluent in Pashto, English, and Urdu. So, get on with your life.

Malala Yousafzai

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

It was difficult to rea I absolutely loved this book. She has paid a high price. I would have loved to say this book merits 5 stars. The story becomes a little more streamlined as Yousafzai starts to recount her older childhood years leading up to the banning of education for girls, but I still had issues with the writing. She was also honored with the National Youth Peace Prize in Pakistan in 2011 and the International Children's Peace Prize in 2013, and she was short-listed for Time magazine's Person of the Year. Their family background and details about the Swat Valley is described vividly in the book and readers get to know more about the places that she have lived and been to. First there is the question of Local Talibans forcing girls from going to schools.

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

Reading this book reminded me of how much I take for granted every day: Freedom of speech. Picking out cans, bottle tops, glass and paper from the rotting pile of rubbish, they would sell them to a garbage shop for a few rupees, barely enough to live on. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize. The regime has lurched between military rule and democracy, between dictatorships and brief periods when a Prime Minister such as Benazir Bhutto was in power. He arrested our elected prime minister, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and had him tried for treason then hanged from a scaffold in Rawalpindi jail. The cute thing is she is a big fan of Twilight and other books about vampires.
