Nothing in this whole world is more beautiful and graceful than a woman who knows her worth! Beneath her skin, there lies a soul that is not just ready to accept the shallow perceptions of the society. She is not just beautiful because of the challenges that she has faced- she is beautiful because of her strength to stand up high and tall after the moment of failure.
She was young and cheerful when the Taliban attached her dignity by shooting a bullet down her head! What was her crime? Well, her crime was her voice and conscience that she dared to raise against anything wrong in her society! The youngest Nobel Peace Prize Winner, a girl from a rural setup of Pakistan, Malala Yousafzai is an inspiration for the humanity. As an epitome of strength and power, Malala has walked high above the petty limitations of age, sex, caste, creed and society. Last year in 2014, she was awarded with the prestigious prize of ‘Youngest Nobel Peace Prize’ for her relentless effort in stating her opinion (despite of getting the constant threats by Taliban) and visiting the USA President Barack Obama. The co-founder of Malala Fund, the little girl has taken some phenomenal steps in uplifting the position of women in her society. From girl education to employment, Malala has beautifully influenced the surrounding countries like Nigeria, Kenya and Jordon. Let’s take a moment to learn some amazing things for the youngest Nobel Peace Prize achiever!
- Age is just a number when it is about the ‘Will’ to ‘Serve’:
Malala started extending her contribution to the society when she was of 11 years of age, fiercely advocating girl child education from the early days. Right at the age of 17, she became the youngest Nobel Prize achiever. So in case you are waiting for the right day to step in then just stop. The time is always ‘Now’!
- That facing the ‘test of time’ with bravery needs courage:
At the age of 15, when Taliban shot Malala right on her head, she wasn’t aware about her future. She was on her trip to abroad for promoting the cause of girl education. Reportedly, Taliban went for a bus hijack in which Malala was travelling. She was nearly dead, but thanks to the inner strength and charm that brought her back to life.
- That fearing the fear is the great fear- bravery is a better option:
By the time Malala was 16, it was evident that nothing could ever stop her effort- not even death! Even though she was nearly shot to death, she went forward to address the United States on the occasion of her 16th birthday. That day, she spoke of ‘the rights of education of every child’.
- That every life’s journey is an inspiration- if spent with dignity and righteousness!
Malala has shared the insightful details of her life through her book ‘I am Malala– How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World’. The book was first published in the US and is said to be the bestseller on Amazon. Why not- her life is a noted inspiration for all!
- That visions could be unlimited:
Providing her best services for the cause of girl education is not her only motive in life! Young Malala aspires to become a doctor. Not only this, Malala also shares a political insight. Her vision to contribute for the growth of society is endless and powerful.
- Behind every successful woman, there is a strong man:
Malala owes the vision of service from her father, who himself is a teacher. Ziauddin Yousafai, Malala’s father, has completely challenged the law and order for supporting woman education. Undeniably, Malala owes the winsome attitude from the man behind her.
- She is an overall achiever:
Apart from all the love and respect that Malala Yousafai has earned till day, she has also bagged a handsome amount of $1.1 million (sharing it with Kailash Satyarthi). Hats off to her effort and conscience- nothing better than this could be expected from a person at her age!
