Malala Yousafzai was known as “the most prominent citizen” and a hero to many.
Malala was a strong pakistanian advocate for girl’s education. Malala’s strong belief in female education has led her to international movement which she then became “the most prominent citizen” of the country of Pakistan. Malala survived an assassination attempt based on her outspoken criticism and her advocacy for women’s education. She has given many speeches to the united nations as well as published many books with her first book “I am Malala” winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. The Malala Fund was introduced to help empower women’s leaders and amplify their voices.
Malala has continued to speak up and present to the world the importance of education, still travelling every July to meet girls who are struggling to go to school, she is now trying to use her influence to help other refugees. Malala has announced that she will be returning to her home country of Pakistan for the first time after the shooting as she “cherished fond memories of home”.
Malala has made a huge difference and huge change to the world through her influential words and actions. Malala travels to different places all over the world and fights to give back to girls what poverty, war and discrimination tried to take away from them. Malala encourages girls to speak up and don’t hold back. Malala aims to eliminate gender discrimination, ensure schools reach marginalised girls, allow access to secondary schools through programmes and enrolment campaigns, introducing policies that support 12 year of free, safe, quality education for every girl with her inspiring words that will overall educate and influence young girls to speak up for their rights.
As Malala strived to get her words across to the world, she has successfully influenced young girls to finally speak up for themselves, this has been shown through Malala’s actions and words to take upon arms to launch a petition for Global Education. This petition allowed Malala to say what she believes which has led to ensuring that children will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling, Pakistan finally passing it’s first Right to Education Bill, youth takeover which gives youth the voice among world educational leaders.
The most significant situation that led Malala do go and complete the volunteer work that she does was the Pakistan shooting, that left her and her family in shock. As the country Pakistan is known and described as “the world’s worst performing countries in education” this led to Taliban’s taking control of Pakistan. Because of this, girls attending school was banned and any female who was currently attending school could no longer go to school. This pushed Malala out of school in which she first got involved in which she does now, volunteering to help other women fight for the right of women to be educated and to let everyone in developing countries that “knowledge is a weapon” and that they should stand up for themselves. This led to Malala first public speech in 2012 where she spoke on behalf of girls and their right to learn, speaking to all women that were in the same position that she was in. The same year Malala started to speak up about her concerns she got shot in the left side of her head from the Taliban’s because of what she believed in. Malala wasn’t going to let this stop her from speaking up about women’s education. Because of this, Malala was even more passionate to speak to other women.
As Malala had a strong relationship with her father, her father was one of the many people that motivated her to go that little bit further and do what you believe will help others. “He inspired me to learn, and once you inspire a child to learn, then you can’t stop him or her” Her father always said to believe in what you think is right and to never let anything stop you for doing so. This inspired Malala to go through and speak up without anything stopping her.
This situation only made Malala motivated and determined to fight. Malala had a choice to either live a quiet life or make the most of her new recovered life and be more determined to continue her fight until every girl could go to school and continuing to speak is exactly what she did. Vocation, a strong feeling of suitability for a particular career or occupation.Malala’s career was purely based on what suited her and he actions, which was to speak to girls across the world. Work activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result. Work refers to Malala’s career as she went to see different women to speak to them about what they should be doing, in this case, speaking up and telling her story, as this would be considered an activity, therefore the purpose and what she is trying to get out it is shown, which results in others speaking up, which is what she taught to many.
