I am Malala
Transcript of I am Malala
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
In Malala's autobiography, we learn many things. First is perseverance. Malala never gives up on her dream of free education for girls in Pakistan. Malala also teaches us about responsibility. After she was shot, she still kept up with her school work, and even thought about doing well in her exams.
Hero or Not?
We learn so much from Malala. Malala never gives up her fight for education, and never gets behind on her own school work. These two examples show Perseverance and Responsibility.

Timeline of Life

She went to many hospitals including:

I am Malala
The best example of Malala's responsibility is in this quote, "When I heard they would be in Birmingham in two days I had one request, "Bring my school bag" I pleaded to my father "If you can't go to Swat to fetch it no matter,-
buy me new books because in March it's my board examination
The quote that best shows Malala's perseverance is, "On my sixteenth birthday I was in New York to speak at the United Nations. I did not write the speech only with the UN delegates in mind; I wrote it for every person around the world who could make a difference. I wanted to reach all people living in poverty, those children are forced to work and those who suffer from terrorism or lack of education. Deep in my heart
I hoped to reach every child who could take courage from my words and stand up for his or her rights.
Two other girls were shot
Her recovery took 3 months
She and her family miss Pakistan and hope to return soon, but it is not safe for them there.
