Some of her quotes...

Why is Malala influential?...


In my opinion I KNOW that she's influential to people to because no matter how much the Taliban banned her from going to school she still wanted her education because she knew that women are strong as men that women can have more experience in any subject. Even though she got shot in the head and had threats from the Taliban she still moved on and got herself an education and won a lot of Nobel Prizes.
