  • We should be able to go to school!!

  • “‘Let us pick up our books and our pens,’ I said. ‘They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world'” (Yousafzai 310).
  • Malala goes to school in Pakistan, she loves going to school and she was very intelligent. Quote:"It wasn't the best of days to start with, as it was the middle of school exams, though as a bookish girl I didn't mind them as much as some of my classmates” (Yousafzai 4) .
  • Climax
  • The Taliban made an ultimatum, stating that all girls shall be militated from going to school in Pakistan and getting an education, and Malala was strongly against that. Quote:"The Taliban could take our pens and books, but they could not stop our minds from thinking” (Yousafzai 77).

  • The Courageous: Malala
  • This lead Malala to giving a speeches about girls being able to get an education. Quote:"I started writing my own speeches and changing the way I delivered them, from my heart rather than from a sheet of paper”(Yousafzai 43).
  • Resolution
  • “‘Let us pick up our books and our pens,’ I said. ‘They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world'” (Yousafzai 310).
  • Malala is beset by the Taliban and gets shot in the head on her way home. Malala becomes paralyzed on the left side of her face. Quote: "She explained that the bullet had entered through the side of my left eye where there was a scar, traveled eighteen inches down to my left shoulder and stopped there. It could have taken out my eye or gone into my brain. It was a miracle I was alive”(Yousafzai 282).
  • Malala became known for her speeches and for her courage to stick up for women’s rights, when people spoke to her, they spoke with compassion because of what had happened to her, she did not want that. Quote:“I don’t want to be thought of as the ‘girl who was shot by the Taliban’ but the ‘girl who fought for education. This is the cause to which I want to devote my life”(Yousafzai 309).
  • Although not being able to get an education and go to school was hard for Malala and made her feel infinitesimal, Malala raised so much awareness for women’s rights and made a change. Quote:"Peace in every home, every street, every village, every country – this is my dream. Education for every boy and every girl in the world. To sit down on a chair and read my books with all my friends at school is my right. To see each and every human being with a smile of happiness is my wish” (Yousafzai 313).
