Malala addresses UN
Malala Yousafzai’s inspirational address to the United Nations was witnessed by 1000 students from around the world. It was her sixteenth birthday and the courageous girl who was shot in the head by a Taliban sniper said, ‘Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world. Education is the only solution. … The terrorists thought that they would change my aims and stop my ambitions but nothing changed in life, except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, courage and fervor was born’.
