Malala Yousafzai


She wants to be a doctor, her dearest ambition is to carry on her studies and help to ensure that every girl has the right to attend school in her country. Malala sets an example to us all on not to silence in the face of injustice. Unfortunately, she almost lost her life because of her ideas. The Pakistani girl was cowardly shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in Swat. She is currently in a serious condition and is being seen by doctors at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Are Pakistani girls destined to have denied their rights to education?

“I felt hurt on opening my wardrobe and seeing my uniform, school bag and geometry box. Boys’ schools are opening tomorrow, but the Taliban have banned girls’ education”  Malala Yousafzai
