Movie Release and Giveaway: He Named Me Malala #WithMalala


What’s in a name? Malala Yousafzai was named after a Pashtun heroine. She is living up to and, some would argue, even surpassing the legacy of her namesake.  Malala is a young woman who directly faced death at 15 years old when she spoke out about gender injustices in her native country, Pakistan.

Even after being shot, she continues to speak out against terrorists and advocate for women around the world. Through the Malala Fund an organization she started in hopes of educating millions of young women, Malala is seeing her dreams come to fruition.

In October 2014 while Malala was only 17 years old she had the distinguished privilege of being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her commitment to her community and young people all over the world. She is a courageous woman. She is also the youngest person, first Pakistani, and the first Pashtun to be awarded the Nobel Peace prize. Malala is an inspiration for all people and especially for young women. She is a teenager who is committed to change. She helps us realize that hope still exists. I included Malala’s Nobel Peace speech within this post, because she is poised and full of wisdom at such a young age. She is a huge inspiration and her life should continued to be celebrated.

Please tune in Monday, February 29, 2016 for the Global Broadcast of He Named Me Malala, which will air on the National Geographic Channel 8 pm est/7 pm cst

I am Malala a story about a courageous teenager who was almost killed but continues to speak up and fight for peace.WATCH HE NAMED ME MALALA:

“He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.”
 
I cannot begin to imagine what Malala faced and continues to face. But I can join her movement and celebrate your bravery.
