I am a kind of addicted to the real-life stories of people. And after Helen Keller, within no time I have read the autobiography of the inspiring Malala Yousafzai. And every book is a new Journey for me. So, enjoy the review!
She is a children’s education activist born in Pakistan. She have spoken to nearly 400 delegates at UN at the age of just 16 and also, she has won multiple international awards including Nobel Peace prize. Another than an inspiration for thousands, she is a great student and a greater daughter. And this book unfolds some heart-touching and sad experiences of her life, but all of it ends with a light of success.
“If you go anywhere, even paradise, you will miss your home.“
This is a fascinating tale of a girl fighting for other girls’ education and of a father who, championed and encouraged his daughter to attend school in the society that prizes sons, the society which thinks that the God is someone who does not want his daughters to grow & achieve success in their lives. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school at the age of 15 in 2012 by the Taliban because of her fight for the equal education of Girls. But even after this she refused to be silent and continued her fight which later reached the global level with the formation of Malala Fund.
According to me, anyone who interested in the inspiring life of Malala, in the current & past situation of people of Pakistan and in the working of human right activists.
