I Am Malala

As part of our social studies, Year 4 learnt about Malala Yousafzai and her fight for girl’s education during the Taliban regime.

As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai defied the Taliban in Pakistan and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012, but survived and went on to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Her work inspired us to become active citizens and appreciate the rights we have access to. We wrote blogs pretending to be Gul Mukai (Malala) writing for the BBC.
