Malala Yousafzai

SOCSD afforded an amazing opportunity for students in grades 5-8. Malala Yousafzai spoke to our students about the importance of education and especially for girls. She has a new book called, We are Displaced. Please read or listen (scroll to the bottom of page) to her biography – Malala Yousafzai. Watch an interview with her below.

“Malala is a symbol of hope and an inspirational role model, particularly for girls. On her 16th birthday, she gave a passionate speech to the United Nations. She was inundated with awards, culminating in the ultimate honor in 2014, the Nobel Peace Prize.”

  1. I was amazed how much Malala wanted herself and other girls so much that she even wrote a blog for the BBC and also lied about her age. Malala was so confident and she did not let the Taliban stop her!

  2. Malala was so brave. I loved what she was saying about “finding our own magic” I loved every moment and I still can’t get over the fact that I saw Malala Yousafzai in person!!! 🙂

  3. I love how fearless, peaceful, strong, and powerful Malala is 😃! She makes refugee girls around the world feel like they have a voice and can speak up for what they think is right.
