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.
