Do Your Best

Do Your Best

"Oh And God, I said, please dont forget to give me first place, since I have worked so hard"


Malala knew that she had worked hard and she wanted to do her best. So she prayed to God so that she would get first in class.

Never Give Up

My father used to say the people of Swat and the teachers would continue to educate our children until the last room, the last teacher and the last student was alive. My parents never once suggested I should withdraw from school, ever. Though we loved school, we hadn’t realized how important education was until the Taliban tried to stop us.”


Malala never gave up when they did not let her give her a education.

Help others for your benefit

“As we crossed the Malakand Pass I saw a young girl selling oranges. She was scratching marks on a piece of paper with a pencil to account for the oranges she had sold, as she could not read or write. I took a photo of her and vowed I would do everything in my power to help educate girls just like her. This was the war I was going to fight.”


It is good to help others because your gratitude can be returned back to you at any time.

Empowerment

“My father was convinced the Taliban would hunt him down and kill him, but he again refused security from the police. ‘If you go around with a lot of security the Taliban will use Kalashnikovs or suicide bombers and more people will be killed,’ he said. ‘At least I’ll be killed alone.'”


Malala's father doesn't care if he dies he is just glad that his family and friends are ok.

Self-Awareness

“I don’t want to be thought of as the ‘girl who was shot by the Taliban’ but the ‘girl who fought for education. This is the cause to which I want to devote my life.”


Malala wants her and others to be aware of who she really is and not who they think she is.
