I Am Malala
By Nickayla Wiggins
Who Is Malala?
Malala vs. Society
"I Am Malala" also opens the eyes of readers to see what others have to go through when it comes to getting an education. When it comes to school, most people would rather stay home and relax. Kids in America are so blessed to have things like new books, laptops, smartboards, and so much more. Kids in Pakistan love having the chance to go to school and learn something new. They don't have any of the things that Americans have. When it comes to Christmas Break, everyone is excited to leave. When it was time for Christmas Break at Malala's school, she and her friends were the total opposite of excited. They were sad because they thought it would be the last time they would be able to go to school because of the new law. From having to sneak to school to being criticized for going to school, kids who are blessed to have the opportunity to go to school should realize that they should be grateful for what they have.
After one of Benazier Bhutto's speeches she sat on top of her bullet proof car and waved to her audience. While she was on the car, someone shot her. Sense the speech was broadcast on live television, everyone saw this take place.
While most of the people in Malala's living room burst into tears, Malala realized that no one was safe. As she sat with her family in shock, an idea came to her. "Why don't you go there and fight for women's rights? Fight to make Pakistan a better place?" Pg 55
This was an important quote to me because it was the beginning of Malala's dream to make the world a better place. It was the beginning of something that would impact people everywhere.
