When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.
In her 2013 memoir, “I Am Malala,” the young Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai reflected on the nature of courage in the face of injustice. When she was shot by Taliban extremists and left for dead in 2012, at just 15 years old, Yousafzai was not scared away from continuing her humanitarian work. After a miraculous recovery, she became even more impassioned and outspoken about the need for women’s education in Pakistan, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. Though the Taliban meant to silence her, Yousafzai instead found her voice was louder than ever, and she has since become a role model to millions worldwide.
