On 12th July 2013, at the The United Nations Youth Assembly, the Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai spoke about a very important topic: the education. Malala started her speech talking about the "Malala day", she said that it wasn't her day, but it was the day of all the woman, all the boys and all the girls who are fighting for something.
She said: "We realise the importance of light when we see darkness. We realise the importance of our voice when we are silenced. When we were in Swat, the north of Pakistan, we realised the importance of pens and books when we saw the guns."
She closed the speech inviting great people to foster the spread of education saying: "One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first."
