I Am Malala – Christina Lamb, Malala Yousafzai

Malala is a true inspiration not just for the people of her own country but for everyone in the world. She continues to fight for the right of education and keeps inspiring people by her speeches.

This would be a good book to read in schools or a book club as one can learn a lot about cultures, world issues and politics.

I was amazed by how she used to watch Ugly Betty when she could not attend school in order to improve her English. It was and still is really tough for girls around the world to get a good education, especially as the belief in some cultures is very much that education is wasted on girls.

Malala also has a fund called ‘Malala fund’ where you can lend your support for educating young girls and boys.

All and all it is worth a read.
