I Am Malala: Book Review

October 24, 2015

In the process of co-authoring Intentional Resiliency with Lynn Schmidt, I have been devouring stories of women around the world who resiliently faced significant adversity and thrived.  This book is a compelling account of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was shot point blank by Taliban gunmen in 2012 and survived to speak to the United Nations a year later about her dream for globally improving conditions for girls. Malala and her father received death threats because of their outspoken views about education for girls in a country where the Taliban military was increasingly hostile toward basic freedoms for women. Her injuries were nearly fatal with a single bullet piercing her head and neck.

The book is a powerful account of her experiences before, during, and after the shooting. She provides intimate details of her thoughts in coping with such a tragedy and, more importantly, her passion for improving the plight of children and girls globally. I hope this book is the first of many she writes throughout her life in fulfilling her amazing mission.
