i am malala

I finished reading I am Malala, written by Malala Yousafzai, in April of 2015, and tonight, after almost a year of waiting, I finally watched the movie.

Malala is my idol, and a true heroine of our time. At her short age she has started a worldwide movement in favor of women’s rights, in favor of education and against violent political regimes like the Taliban. If all this wasn’t enough, she is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history. She achieved all this before she was 18 years old.

Malala’s story is inspiring, moving and significant, and she must have had a lot of help in writting this book as it is entertaining and easy to read.

I recommend everybody to watch the movie, and when you do, do it with your children and grandchildren. But before you watch it, read the book. The movie is just a good ending for the book, but is not a substitute for it. To understand it all, to understand her, to understand her cause and her movement, and to understand what each one of us has to do, you must read the book. I am Malala should be required as a text book in all highschools around the world.

I have two copies of I am Malala,  which I am going to give away for free. If you are interested leave me a message or send me an email.

You can read my full review of the book in GoodReads.com
