The girl who defied death for Education

“They thought that the bullets would silence us, but they failed. And out of that silence came thousands of voices. The terrorists thought they would change my aims and stop my ambitions. But nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born.”

Malala Yousafzai’s speech gave me the goosebumps and made me realise how lucky I was to get the education I had. Yes, education is power. It gives me the power to keep prejudices at bay and to have an open mind always.

Hats off to you Malala Yousafzai. You’re an inspiration.
