I Am Malala

Written in the first person, Malala forms an immediate connection with the reader, describing herself as “a girl like any other.”

Her favorite color is pink, she fights with her brothers, watches TV, plays cricket, and loves going to school.

All of that changed with the arrival of the Taliban – banning television, women from public places, and education for girls.

Malala’s outspoken response caused her to become a target of the Taliban, and in 2012 she was shot.

Surviving, and being more determined than ever to fight for education rights, Malala became the voice for many.
