I AM MALALA
Transcript of I AM MALALA
Malala has just been shot by a Taliban solider. She arrives at the hospital where the news of her shooting spreads immediately. Her father finishes his presentation and rushes to the hospital. He finds his daughter was shot by the Taliban. Malala is alive but very injured. The doctors tell him the bullet came very close to damaging her brain but it didn't. Malala's friends, Shazia and Kainat, were also injured but not as severely. Malala's mother seeked to visit her but her friend's told her it was better to wait because she might be moved or dead. Colonel Junaid, the head neurosurgeon, finds the bullet in Malala's shoulder. He determines that the bullet almost hit Malala's brain, but there are splinters of bone in her brain. He conducts a surgery. The Taliban claims responsibility for shooting Malala. They say they shot her, not because of her education platform, but because she was opposing them with her support of western culture and admiration of Obama. After her brain surgery, scans of Malala's brain are sent around the world to ensure she get's the best treatment. British doctors, Fiona Reynolds and Javid Kayani, come and examine Malala. They are worried about her recovering because her carbon dioxide levels are too low. Malala's health continues to deteriorate when they find a young woman named Arfa Karim, has died of a heart attack at age 16. Malala's dad is devastated.
As Malala describes how she was rushed to the hospital and the media circus that surrounds it, what do you think was the collective feeling of the Pakistani citizens, specifically Swat residents?
Even in the midst of Malala's serious injury, what was the connection with the military, it's hospital, and views about their role/impact?
What was the general message sent by the Taliban in their statement about Malala's shootings? Do you believe it was honest?
After the British physicians visited Malala in the hospital, what concerns were raised? Do you think that was a pivotal point in her recovery? If so, why?
In Chapter 22, Malala's condition is worsening. Her father starts to think the worse. Dr. Fiona is doing everything she can to save her. Due to the insufficient care at Peshawar Hospital, her options are running low. They decided she needed to be moved overseas to the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi. They had top notch security and took good care of her. International offers started to pile in from so many countries to help further her medical care. The military general, General Kayani, decided she was to be moved to the Queen Elisabeth Hospital in Birmingham. There was a problem with passports and legal papers for Malala's family. Only her father was allowed to go with her. At first, he was okay with leaving his wife and sons behind, but he soon realized that wasn't fair to them. He wanted to be there to protect his family from any danger the Taliban may bring, so he put all his faith in God, and the doctors helping his daughter. He signed over the papers of guardianship to Dr.Fiona, and prayed for the best.

Malala begins to have nightmares about the Taliban. She takes many precautions at night. She would lock all the doors and windows, check on everyone in the house, and then pray for all human beings. Malala’s first exam was physics. She studied very hard but still got some things wrong. Her next exam was Pakistani studies. Malala studied even harder for this paper and did very well on it. She was on the bus going home with her friends when Malala noticed different things. She saw a man killing chickens and after they left the army check point she noticed that not many people were around. Suddenly, the bus stopped. Two men stood behind the bus and asked, “ Who is Malala?” The next thing she heard was three bullets firing from a gun.
I AM MALALA
After the shooting, Malala is brought to Birmingham for treatment/ surgery. While there, Malala describes her experiences there. Because of the shooting, half her hair is missing and one side of her face couldn't move, leading to her father exclaiming that her smile has been snatched. After being reunited with her family in the hospital, they are visited by politicians who inform her father that they know who shot Malala. They also tell them that November 10th has been made "Malala Day". This date has been later changed to Malala's Birthday (12th July)
In the epilogue, Malala describes their new home. She talks about how her current life differs from the life she had in Swat. While talking about her new home, she talks about how much safer she feels. Although she is very happy in her new home, she is also very lonely. In Swat, there were kids running in the streets and playing on the rooves. In Birmingham, the city she in which she lives, there is no one. The houses are much closer, but Malala feels that she is very distant from her neighbors. At the end of the epilogue, Malala talks about how thankful she is and how much she loves Allah. She thanks him for what he has done in her life and for the ability to touch the lives of so many.
