What would YOU say to the UN?
Today, Malala Yousafzai, a 16 year old girl from Pakistan who survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban, gave a bold and impassioned speech at the UN. She motivated world leaders to fight for girls' education, just as she has been doing. She echoed the voices of so many of our community members, who participated in our Girls Campaign, inspiring us all: “Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first.”
Her words were powerful, just like all of yours! So this brings me to my question: if you were in Malala's shoes and could say anything to the UN on the issue of girls' education, what would you say? What solutions would you offer them? How would you inspire them?
Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below, so that we can celebrate the efforts that are being made by Malalas all over the world to push for girls' access to education!
