Malala Yousafzai The brave Girl with nothing to feaR

Challenges

Malala Yousafzai was a little girl born in Pakistan on July 12, 1997 who believed that "One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world." But, she faced, and is still facing, a death threat from the Taliban, who appose her thoughts of the girls' rights to education. On October 9, 2012, when Malala was 15 years old, a masked gunman shot her while she was about to head home from school on the bus, where her friends were present. The bullet hit her on the left side of her head, which then went down her neck, and two other girls were also injured. Although she is fine now, Malala was left in a critical condition as a result of the gunshot, and despite the critical condition she had to go through and the death threats continuing from the Taliban, she remains loyal to her work and thought for girls to receive education.

Malala continued her acts for girls to have an education, even with a big challenge that involves risking her own life.

Courageous Acts

As brave and righteous person Malala was, she wrote an autobiography of her life and the gunshot she had to endure. Just to stay loyal to her work and thought of girls receiving education, she put and is putting her life on risk in order for girls to be educated. She even received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for her work that changed the lives of many. "U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon described her as 'a brave and gentle advocate of peace who through the simple act of going to school became a global leader.'" Many people respect her as a result of her bravery and courageous act, although the Taliban do not. She continues to inspire people all over the earth, whether that is South America or Asia. She even established the Malala Fund, which is a school for girls.

A young girl made something that some people thought was impossible made it possible through courage.

Reflection

I think Malala's story inspired me in several ways. It taught me to never give up, and I feel that if I believe in God, he will help me even in the most critical conditions. For example, I am not really satisfied with my grades right now, and some people, not necessarily people that I personally know, say that girls are less intelligent than boys, it that is not true. Also, some people struggle hard to receive an education, and I feel like I should feel more thankful for the great education that I am receiving right now. I also feel like I should voice out what I think is wrong and right, just as Malala strongly voiced out her opinion of girls having an education. Lastly, just like Malala worked hard for girls to receive education, and her work resulted in what she wanted, I think that we will receive what we deserve, based on how hard we worked for the achievement we want to achieve.

We should read and look into ourselves like this tree and do what we really think we think is right, and receive what we deserve.
