Malala Yousafzai Headshot

This is Malala Yousafzai, the main character and the hero of the book.  Malala is a incredibly brave 16 year old who just wanted education for girls in Swat as well as all over Pakistan.  Because she went to school and spoke out against the Taliban’s rules, they raided the bus she was on and shot her.  She survived, luckily, and became a worldwide symbol for girls’ and women’s rights.
