Malala recieves Europe´s biggest human rights award Sakharov.
10 October 2014
Malala recieves the Nobel Peace Prize 2014. She shares it with Kailash Satyarthi
Malala always knew that standing up to fight for her rights is a big risk for her and her family. She saw what the Taliban are able to do every single day, but that didn´t stopped her.
It was really important for her that the world knows how the situation in Pakistan for girls is, and that it has to change, no matter what it takes.
She was never afraid of the Taliban even thought she knew what they are able to.
She became hope for all the girls in the world who don´t get education.
When Malala was younger she wanted to become a doctor and she knew that she will need a really good education and a good english to achieve that. Her father saw her potential in being a politician and told his daughter that she should become one.
After Malala had realized that she really can and has to change something, she agreed with her father.
So she began to write the blog for the BBC Urdu and when the Taliban started to attack girl´s schools she started to speak about education in front of a growing public platform.
This quote from her speech for the UN shows the best who she was inspired by.
"This is the compassion that I have learned from Muhammad-the prophet of mercy, Jesus christ and Lord Buddha. This is the legacy of change that I have inherited from Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali Jinnah. This is the philosophy of non-violence that I have learnt from Gandhi Jee, Bacha Khan and Mother Teresa. And this is the forgiveness that I have learnt from my mother and father."
The girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban
The Taliban shot Malala on her way home from school, a gunman stopped her school bus and asked who is Malala Yousafzai. Nobody said anything, but everybody looked at her. The Talib shot three times at Malala and at two of her friends.
One bullet hit the left side of Yousafzai's forehead, travelled under her skin through the length of her face, and then went into her shoulder.
One girl in the age of 15 is able to scare the Taliban so much, that they try to kill her.
Malala´s blog for the BBC Urdu
Malala started to write the blog, when she was 11 years old. Her father was asked by the BBC if he would know anybody who could write a blog about the life under the Taliban for them and he asked girls from Malala´s school. One girl agreed, but her parents decided that it is to dangerous, so he finally asked his daughter.
Malala writes under the pseudonym of Gel Makai,
"I had a terrible dream yesterday with military helicopters and the Taleban. I have had such dreams since the launch of the military operation in Swat. My mother made me breakfast and I went off to school. I was afraid going to school because the Taleban had issued an edict banning all girls from attending schools.
Only 11 out of 27 pupils attended the class because the number decreased because of the Taliban's edict. My three friends have shifted to Peshawar, Lahore and Rawalpindi with their families after this edict."

"One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education First"

Speech Nobel Peace Prize
her speech after she has recieved the Nobel Peace Prize
“I felt more powerful and more courageous, because this award is not just a piece of metal… its really an encouragement for me to go forward and to believe in myself”
“This is not the end of the campaign I have started. This is only the beginning.”
“I want to tell children all around the world that they should stand up for their rights, they shouldn’t wait for someone else, this award is for all those children who are voiceless, whose voices need to be heard.”
other important quotes
"All I want is education and I´m afraid of no one.
"I don't know why people have divided the whole world into two groups, west and east. Education is neither eastern nor western. Education is education and it's the right of every human being."
When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.
I Am Malala
history of Malala written by her and co-written by Christina Lamb
published 8th October 2013
most parts written in the hospital
“Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons."
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”
“I told myself, Malala, you have already faced death. This is your second life. Don't be afraid — if you are afraid, you can't move forward.”
“I don't want to be thought of as the "girl who was shot by the Taliban" but the "girl who fought for education." This is the cause to which I want to devote my life.”
“The Taliban could take our pens and books, but they couldn’t stop our minds from thinking.”
I chose Malala Yousafzai for this history project not only because she is a great leader, she also is a great example for everyone to speak up, to fight for their rights and not to give up.
She makes everybody believe that one voice can change the world, no matter which age, if female or male, or where you come from.
She really is hope!

She is the youngest person who has ever won the Nobel Peace Prize and the second one from Pakistan (all Nobel Prizes).
