Amazing Malala Yousufzai at the United Nations in New York on July 12th : Malala Yousafzai celebrated her 16th birthday demanding compulsory education for young people worldwide !
« One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first.« That’s the key of her life ! She fights for education around the world !
If you remember, Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban in Pakistan in October 2012, right in her head ! She was attacked for standing up for education in Pakistan an everywhere in the whole world ! She could have died that day, but she fought for her life ! She is such an amazing, strong and powerful girl ! Listen to what she said at the UN, it’s incredible how such a young person can talk ! She deeply talks with her heart and her wish to see all children have access one day to education.
« The terrorists thought that they would change my aims and stop my ambitions, But nothing changed in my life, except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born. »
« I want education for the sons and daughters of the Taliban and all the terrorists and extremists. »
The U.N. has by the way declared July 12 – her 16th birthday – as « Malala Day. »
