Storyboard Text

  • Malala Yousafazai grew up in Swat Valley, Pakistan with her mother, father and two younger brothers.  Her father ran a school that Malala attended.
  • "Jani, how was the school running today?"
  • "Aba, the school is walking, not running!"
  • Today we will learn about...
  • Malala is very passionate about school.  She is always excited to go and studies hard to be the number one student.
  • One day, after a terrible earthquake, the rebel group known as TNSM led by a man named Fazlullah began spreading their message.  They argued that Pakistan was haram, or not following Islamic law.  Especially when it came to girls going to school.
  • Malala did not believe them.  She knew that education and people's rights to it were a good thing.  For now, she decided that she would ignore their words.
  • They're wrong!
  • However, things would become worse over the years to come.  Women were banned from going outside without a male escort, movies and TV shows were now banned.  Malala and her brothers quietly watched TV in their home, always afraid of someone hearing it.
  • Eventually, it was announced that girls should no longer go to school after age 10.  Malala began noticing that more of her classmates were not coming to school anymore.
