Khushal is 14 years old and Atal is 9 years old. Her hometown Mingora is known for a popular tourist spot because of its festivals. Some of their festivals are Eid and Ramadan. When Malala was 11 years old, the Taliban banned women’s rights like watching television, listening to music, going shopping and their education.
On October 9 2012, a Taliban gunman shot Malala when she was coming home from school in a bus after she took an exam in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. After she got identified, the gunman shot her twice but luckily, she survived! The bullet wound was not that critical but she went into coma. Malala accomplished a lot of things. She came to canada and learned how to speak english with nobody teaching her and had a conversation with the parliament. In 2014, she also got the Nobel Peace prize for the struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to have education.
Malala is ambitious and intelligent. She was the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She got it in 2014 when she was just 17 years old. The United Nations named July 12 as world Malala day since that was her birthday.A big lesson we learned from Malala is to never hesitate to raise your voice, never hate or seek revenge and to stand for your rights.
