Malala Yousafzai as a young girl believed in girls education, she thought that everyone had the right to learn. The Taliban, (Terrorist Group) made Malala a target because the thought otherwise, and on October 9th 2012 on the way home in a school bus she was shot once in the head.
Why I Nominated Malala...
I nominated Malala Yousafzai because she had the courage to stand up . She was young that didn’t stop her from trying to make a difference, She has suffered she didn’t give up and for it she has encouraged others like myself and in the process even won the Nobel Peace Prize!
I believe that Malala has show discipleship qualities by forgiving the gunman that shot her, she said this during her speech on her 16th birthday 2013. Most people would not be able to forgive something as big as that. Another time I think she demonstrated these qualities when even taking a stand instead of being a bystander, just like Jesus at the Temple he saw a problem and took action.
Overall I think what Malala Yousafzai did and is doing a great thing for girls everywhere, her courage is encouraging and uplifting to others to know that someone still cares. Even though she is still a target, she still fights to help others.
