Today I have finished part 1 of I Am Malala and I’m really enjoying it because it gives you the setting and puts you in her perspective. Here is just a brief introduction: Malala Yousafzai is 10 years old and lives with her parents and two brothers named Khushal and Atal. She enjoys spending time with her friends and going to school. Malala loves school because it is a safe and special place to her where everyone can learn and grow. She believes in equality and fights for human rights and lives in Pakistan, Mingora. Her dad runs the Khushal school and supports Malala in whatever she does, even if it goes against traditional ways.
This all takes place in a busy city where females are treated unequally and education is somewhat scarce. Some of them think that they’re not even a part of their family. “Why send a daughter to school?” the men often say. “She doesn’t need an education to run a house.” (Yousafzai and McCormick 23 & 24). Some richer families are pulling their kids out of school just because they are sharing classrooms with those who clean their houses and clothes. She will fight to balance this out and give fair opportunities to everyone no matter what.
All together I am looking forward to what actions she will take and how to overcome this issue. It has a message that if anyone that works hard can accomplish their goals. This is what I think of it so far and want to know your opinion so leave a comment!
