6 times Malala’s documentary left us speechless

There’s no denying we’ve always been fans of Malala at ONE, but after seeing her new documentary, He Named Me Malala, we’ve got to admit that we might be more than a *teensy* bit in awe of the world’s youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner…

Shot in the head when she was just 15 by the Taliban for defying their beliefs about girls not needing an education, she has not stopped fighting for the cause since. Whilst anyone would be forgiven for letting this vile act of aggression deter them from speaking out again, Malala has used the experience to galvanise an entire movement for girls’ rights around the world, whilst still finding time to do her homework, learn magic tricks and beat her brothers at arm wrestling – she truly is a marvel.

Also, as if being the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize wasn’t enough, this year, tying together the release of her book and documentary, The Malala Fund has launched Stand #WithMalala, a global campaign aiming to raise girls’ voices and ensure every girl has access to 12 years of free, safe, quality primary and secondary education.

And did we mention she’s only 18 years old?

Anyway, we’ll stop bragging on her behalf and let you take a look at the 6 times Malala totally nailed life in her new film:

  1. On the Taliban trying to limit her life experiences – 1
  2. On why it’s not all just about her –
    5
  3. On what true gender equality looks like –
    2
  4. On what determination looks like –
    3
  5. On what it takes to change the world –
    4
  6. On what her life would be like if she was an ordinary girl –
    6

Incredible right?!

Do you believe a quality education, free from fear of violence, is every girl’s right? Then join the movement to support education for girls around the world.
