Review of “He Named Me Malala”

I just saw the documentary “he named me Malala”. This about Malala Yousafzai, and she stood-up to the Taliban in Pakistan for the rights of girl to have an education. They used beautiful oil animation to illustrate her and her father’s past leading up to where the Taliban shot her in the forehead (at the age of 15) for speaking out against them. She is from Mingora, Pakistan in the Swat Valley (which is in the northern part of Pakistan near the mountains. In 2014 she became the youngest person to win the Nobel peace prize at the ripe old age of 17. Here are a couple of images of her. The last image is where the bullet hit her. I suggest that everyone should go see this Documentary.

When I heard her story last year it kicked me in the butt to do something in my life.  She is a true inspiration to me.  Someone with the strength and courage to stand up to an oppressive regime and pay the price, then get back up and keep doing it.  Damn that’s strong of heart and an admirable trait to me.  Now I am taking my therapy more seriously and back at school.
