Meet Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel laureate and an incredible campaigner for girls’ education.
When Malala was born in Mingora, Pakistan, her father was determined that she would have the same opportunities as boys. She enjoyed getting an education, but when a group of hateful violent men seized power in Pakistan, girls were barred from going to school. Malala spoke publicly about this, which made her a target for the abusers. She was shot in the head and woke up in a hospital in England. Months later, after a series of operations, Malala recovered and focused on fighting for girls’ right to education. Recently graduated from Oxford University, Malala continues to fight tirelessly for a world where girls are empowered to learn and become leaders.
This moving book contains stylish and unique illustrations that describe the life of Malala, the extraordinary activist, up to the present day.
