Malala as a child.

1. In her childhood, Malala's dad was her teacher. Her dad also believed girls should go to school to. She spoke fluent English and Urdu,Pakistan's national language. She wasn't allowed to but she did. Only kids 10 and lower were allowed to. She attended a western school in Pakistan. Her mother, Tor Pekai, didn't have an education. Malala would inspire her to go. As she got older she was against girls her age not going to school. Soon she gave a herself a voice. Her speech was about how every boy and girl should be free to learn and get an education. Women were also not allowed to public speak in her country.
