“We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.”- Malala Yousafzai
They say actions speak louder than words. Although, both hold equal importance in today’s world. Moreover, how you use your words and how you impose your actions can change the world. The novel generation has grown up to some of the most marvelous role models. We have completely altered the meaning of revolution. We are modern thinkers. Also, we look for exceptional ways to solve issues that need attention. One such rebellious girl is Malala Yousafzai.
Now if you are wondering if this article is an everyday appreciation post, you are wrong. Rather through today’s article Brag Social means to move you. To inspire you. To make sure you do not give up on yourself when the world does.
I do not let my yesterday define me:
Malala Yousafzai does not have an ordinary story. When one learns of her past, they might feel it was the climax of some interesting book. A book you knew would change your perspective towards life. After having completed her exam, on 9th October 2012, Malala took her usual bus. She was the mere age of 15. Little did young Malala know this day was going to turn her world upside down. That summer, due to her path-breaking work in the field of education, the Taliban had decided to kill her. Gunmen walked down roads and questioned the girls. Furthermore, they shot her. Two of the other girls were injured as well.
Malala was heavily injured. It was an unforeseen situation. The government officials sent her to a hospital in Peshawar. Doctors from all parts of the world wanted to treat her. But not one person knew. But, that day, a new Malala came out of the operation room. One enough to inspire millions. Today, she is a world-famous activist. Furthermore, she is also the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. This girl stands for what every girl, in every household believes in. Equality. She is fighting for the education rights of females. Malala belongs to the Swat Valley in Khyber, Pakistan. She envisions the girls of her town reaching unbelievable heights. She also fights for the rights of the young ones.
Malala runs the Malala Fund in Birmingham. She has also authored a book. It is her autobiography. She calls it “I am Malala”. She has changed how the world looks at her country. Malala honored Pakistan with its first Nobel Peace Prize.
Some unknowns about me:
The blogging life:
Malala was a prodigy. She started her own blog at the mere age of 11. She vividly wrote about her life. Malala blogged under the alias name of Gul Makai. She boldly wrote about what difficult times her town was facing. Additionally, she talked to her audience about the growing influence of the Taliban in Swat. The commendable thing about this fact is she was writing for BBC, the famous news company. This was just the beginning for her. She was meant for greater achievements in life. Her father was her biggest role model during this time. He was a modern thinker in old times. While everyone was protecting their daughters, Mr. Yousafzai suggested his own daughter’s name for the job. He knew her penned words would help change the future.
Right to Education Bill:
After the deadly attack on Malala, Pakistan had woken up. They wanted to amend their ways. It was after this entire event, they released the Right to Education Bill. This bill enables every kid the blessing of education. From the age of five to sixteen, every child is eligible for free education. Also, the “Centre of Education and Consciousness” established Education Youth Ambassadors. All of this was because of Malala and her strenuous efforts. These ambassadors spread awareness about the importance of education. In addition to that, the literacy rates of Pakistan have soared. They are far from the destination, but definitely, there is immense progress.
A dove representing peace:
Today Malala represents the UN. She is their youngest Messenger of Peace. Malala opened her first girl’s school at the age of 18. She invited all the world leaders to come to provide books at her institutions. She believes in the saying “Provide Books not bullets”. UN’s messengers of peace usually are people from the field of Arts, Literature, and Science. They devote their entire lives to help in Global Development. Malala says her unfortunate attack did not weaken her. Rather it made her stronger. And made her believe that a change was required.
In conclusion, Malala is God in the eyes of many. She is every girl’s dream. She only teaches us one thing. Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it. She faced innumerable obstacles in her life. Furthermore, Malala was only hoping to bring about equality among both genders. Ask for what is rightfully yours. Fight for your basic rights. Life is all about taking risks. Be Malala. Be the change the world needs.
