Just picked up a new book and began reading it today, I Am Malala.
In short, the book, is about a young girl, the author herself Malala Yousafzai, who gets shot point blank by the Taliban in her home country Pakistan in pursuit of fighting for education and social change. Fortunately she survives the incident. However, in her book, she shares her experience, insight, and wisdom as an activist and vehicle for social change prior to and after the shooting. She comes from a lineage of strong role models who she emulates, including a father who is a poet. I found this book an interesting read considering the currently social climate of today’s world, and because it was a book symbolized conviction, faith, and purpose in one’s journey. As you could probably tell from my prior posts, I have great admiration and respect for individuals who serve a purpose greater than themselves and for the good of society.
While I am only on Chapter 3, I would definitely continue touching base with you guys here!
