I Am Malala – Malala Yousafzai

Buy on Amazon


I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.

Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

  1. Our daughters were also challenged by taquiya tactics inherent in Andalusian macho culture influenced by Moor contagion infecting Latin bloodlines claimed excluding, for example, my French ancestry more proud in Montreal than La Rasa is arrogant in Southern Colorado.
    As naked racism has done more damage to the Spanish blood coursing through our daughters from their lovely mother, that fire has tempered their steel spirits of iron will.
    More power to Malala.
    Her living courage is plainly the blessed conviction of divine purpose by Grace of the greater plan as God’s will.
