I would be like Malala if I couldn't go to school I would fight. I wouldn't care if they tired hurting me just for wanting to go to school. I would try any way to try to get the education for every child like Malala did. She only cares about every child getting education and getting to go to school. I would fight for my education and for others education also. By: Kathy Lara Period 5
