The Real Reason ‘He Named Me Malala’ Is So Inspiring
When I saw the trailer for He Named Me Malala, I immediately teared up. I expected watching the feature film itself, therefore, to similarly involve waterworks. He Named Me Malala was not just an emotional experience, however, but also an inspiring one that offered unprecedented insight into the full humanity of this young leader.
For those not familiar with her story, Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist for girls’ education and the youngest winner of the Nobel Prize. Malala began her activist journey at just 11 years old, when she wrote a BBC column about the struggle girls face to get an education under Taliban rule. She incredibly survived an assassination attempt and continued to advocate for women worldwide, even publishing a book about her work.
