Malala Yousafzai. The girl who was shot by the Taliban for standing up for education. A girl who has become a worldwide sensation, a girl who has become the face of empowering girls, a girl who just wants girls to have a chance in this world. The girl who is the face of strength. A Nobel Peace recipient.
I posted the other day about the world premiere of "He Named Me Malala" on National Geographic Channel on February 29th.
I have just started reading "I Am Malala" in anticipation of the premiere and I am absolutely blown away. Her story is amazing. Her love of the Swat Valley, Pakistan is evident. The love for her people, education and rights for girls is so passionate that the reader can't help but feel an overwhelming desire to help, too. I am only a few chapters in but.... I can't help but feel the pull on my heart to do something. Her story drew me in from the moment I first heard of Malala when she was shot. She believes that educating the population is the number one defense in ending terrorism and oppression. I agree with her.
If you haven't seen the trailer, WATCH IT NOW...
ABOUT THE MOVIE:
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.
