*Winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize*

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price when she was shot in the head at point-blank range.

Malala Yousafzai's extraordinary journey has taken her from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations. She has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and is the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.

I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.

Inspiring

Malala is a global figure, courageous and inspirational. Of course like everyone else around at the time I knew her story from the media but I had never got around to reading her story in her own words. It is so much more powerful to do this, though I did find some of it (the political parts, acronyms) a bit hard going - Note: there is a glossary at the back.
It is clear that Malala has a strong yearning to return to live in Pakistan and it wouldn’t surprise me if one day she were to be a politician in her home country but how many years in the future that may be is anyone’s guess. I wouldn’t think she is in any danger from the Taliban now; to kill her would be to make her a martyr and even more influential, however threats to her family could be a way of silencing her. In the meantime a good education (Oxford University) will stand her in good stead if she does indeed wish to follow in the footsteps of her role model Benazir Bhutto and her Malala Fund and campaigning is doing good around the world. I wish her all the best in her future.

Thank you Malala.
