Documentary about Malala

In the documentary film “He Named Me Malala,” we see Malala Yousafzai at school, at home, and in her work as an advocate for children’s education. A Pakistani schoolgirl who survived being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman, Malala is also the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize. It can be easy to forget that she’s also a teenage girl, something the documentary reminds of us of, as we see her worrying about school and fitting in. Now living in England, we see the challenges she faces integrating into a new country, as well as the strong Yousafzai family bond. Malala’s role as an education advocate shines through. She visits a Kenyan girls’ school, opens a school for Syrian refugee children in Lebanon, and visits Nigeria as part of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. She is truly a wonderful person and I can only see great things coming to her. She is a perfect example to everyone in the world that truly anyone can make a difference. Remember that she was just a young girl when she started advocating for education and now just see how far she's come. She is truly an admiration. Will you be watching the documentary? What does Malala mean to you?

"Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world."-Malala Yousafzai
