Book Report: I Am Malala

51dVLcrS0gL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Chances are you have heard of Malala Yousafzai. She is the Pakistani girl who is an advocate for girls’ right to education and was shot by the Taliban. Since then she has written a book, received a Nobel Peace Prize and created a foundation in her name… and she is still only 18 years old. I am beyond inspired by her life story, her courage, and her relentless pursuit for the right of girls and women to receive an education. I Am Malala is a book that will change your life forever. Malala has become a symbol of hope in a world ravaged by violence and brutality.

I also would like to highlight a recently published FastCompany article (photo cred) that talks more about the foundation in what they have been able to accomplish under the leadership of Meighan Stone, President of the Malala Foundation.
