Synopsis

Malala Yousafzai by Hachette Children's Books, Claudia Martin

I am Malala. These three words have become synonymous with one girl's tireless campaign for the right of young people around the world to have an education. This title explores how Malala Yousafzai, a schoolgirl from Pakistan, stood up to the Taliban and defended her right to an education. From her initial blogging for the BBC, to the shooting that rocked the world, to her emergence as a powerful speaker in favour of feminist rights and being awarded the Noble Peace Prize, Malala's story will amaze and inspire you. The series focuses on the people who inspire children today. Each book looks at the background, life and achievements of a personality, their impact on popular culture as well as detailing the everyday facets of their job and how they have gained such success.
