I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai
“We liked to be known as the clever girls. When we decorated our
hands with henna for holidays and weddings, we drew calculus and
chemical formulae instead of flowers and butterflies.”
― Malala Yousafzai

October 9, 2012 Malala was on a bus when a gunman came on and asked for her by name. Malala had received many death threats in the past. After singling her out the gunman shot three bullets, two of which hit her friends beside her and the last went throught her head and lodged in her shoulder. A Taliban spokesman said they had no choice but to kill Malala.
Malala was sent to a hospital in Peswhar, but as her conditions became more severe she was sent to Birmingham. She did not leave until January 2013.
A hero is a person who overcomes challenges and continues to fight for what they believe in.
Malala fits the description of a hero because she
is still actively fighting for the rights of girls
even after she was singled out by the Taliban.
Malala could have given up after she knew she was a target for the Taliban, but instead she still fights for the rights of many.

I am the light of knowledge
I rise out of darkness
and become the desire of life.

I dream
a new dawn
for the children of my county
I dream
a new land
for the mothers of my nation.

I dream
for every woman,
each one a light
a symbol of courage.
Turning the tide of ignorance.

Ignorants and cowards
fear my dreams
hate me, cut me apart.
But know that if my sun sinks,
many new moons will rise.

I rise out of darkness
from the verge of death
to become the desire of life.
I am the light of knowledge
I am Malala

Malala, Symbol of hope
