“There is a moment when you have to choose whether to be silent or to stand up” – Malala.
Malala Yousafzai has an inspiring story to tell. Her story begins long before the October 2012 attack that brought her worldwide attention. For years, Malala and her father were singled out for advocating for girls’ education in Pakistan. Their passion drew critics who plotted to silence her voice. Instead of silence, that gunshot attack sparked an outcry from supporters across the world. Malala miraculously survived. She is a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
