Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. Shot by the Taliban Book, Download pdf I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up. I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for . I COME FROM a country which was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday. One year ago I left my home for school and.
Some people say I will never return home but I believe firmly in my heart that I will. To be torn from the country that you love is not something to wish on anyone. Now, every morning when I open my eyes, I long to see my old room full of my things, my clothes all over the floor and my school prizes on the shelves.
Instead I am in a country which is five hours behind my beloved homeland Pakistan and my home in the Swat Valley. But my country is centuries behind this one. Here there is any convenience you can imagine. Here everything is so modern one can even find food ready cooked in packets.
When I stand in front of my window and look out, I see tall buildings, long roads full of vehicles moving in orderly lines, neat green hedges and lawns, and tidy pavements to walk on. I close my eyes and for a moment I am back in my valley — the high snow-topped mountains, green waving fields and fresh blue rivers — and my heart smiles when it looks at the people of Swat. My mind transports me back to my school and there I am reunited with my friends and teachers.
I meet my best friend Moniba and we sit together, talking and joking as if I had never left. Then I remember I am in Birmingham, England. The day when everything changed was Tuesday, 9 October That morning we arrived in the narrow mud lane off Haji Baba Road in our usual procession of brightly painted rickshaws, sputtering diesel fumes, each one crammed with five or six girls.
For us girls that doorway was like a magical entrance to our own special world. As we skipped through, we cast off our head-scarves like winds puffing away clouds to make way for the sun then ran helter-skelter up the steps. At the top of the steps was an open courtyard with doors to all the classrooms.
We dumped our backpacks in our rooms then gathered for morning assembly under the sky, our backs to the mountains as we stood to attention. Yet, outside the door to the school lay not only the noise and craziness ofMingora, the main city of Swat, but also those like the Taliban who think girls should not go to school.
That morning had begun like any other, though a little later than usual. At the proceedings in her honour, Yousafzai stated that she was not a member of any political party, but hoped to found a national party of her own to promote education.
Death threats against her were published in newspapers and slipped under her door. In a meeting held in the summer of , Taliban leaders unanimously agreed to kill her.
Yousafzai was 15 years old at the time. Two other girls were also wounded in the shooting: Kainat Riaz and Shazia Ramzan,both of whom were stable enough following the shooting, to speak to reporters and provide details of the attack TREATMENT After the shooting, Yousafzai was airlifted to a military hospital in Peshawar, where doctors were forced to begin operating after swelling developed in the left portion of her brain, which had been damaged by the bullet when it passed through her head.
After a five-hour operation, doctors successfully removed the bullet, which had lodged in her shoulder near her spinal cord. Interior Minister Rehman Malik said that Yousafzai would be moved to Germany, where she could receive the best medical treatment, as soon as she was stable enough to travel.
On 15 October, Yousafzai travelled to the United Kingdom for further treatment, approved by both her doctors and family. Yousafzai had come out of her coma by 17 October On 3 January , Yousafzai was discharged from the hospital. In December, she addressed the Oxford Union.
On 12 July , her 18th birthday, Yousafzai opened a school in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, near the Syrian border, for Syrian refugees. Yousafzai has repeatedly condemned the Rohingya persecution in Myanmar. She repeated this aim in and Having received the prize at the age of 17, Yousafzai is the youngest Nobel laureate. Yousafzai shared the prize with Kailash Satyarthi.
