she is SIXTEEN
she also got shot in the HEAD and LIVED
My biggest inspiration
this is why I want to hit people who make fun of little western girls who say “I want to be like Malala!!” with a fucking shoe. How dare you bring your jaded adult bullshit into that innocence.
Look at her. She is amazing. She’s done amazing things. I’m reading her book right now and it’s insane. This girl is the face of what education and compassion is capable of. She is the face of what it is so many people fight for and I’m glad it’s her- someone strong enough to speak out.
You all should watch the whole extended interview, because I am so blown away by her I want to cry. She is an amazing speaker, and I really want to see what she’ll do with her life, because I can’t believe someone go great could exist in this world.
