When two great women like Emma Watson and Malala Yousafzai come together, one can not expect anything less than the extraordinary. Emma who is a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, and Malala who is a Nobel Prize laureate, are women who are known for making a movement. Both have proved their mettle, their worth, and the fact that women are strong and can achieve anything and everything they set their hearts on.
HERE ARE 5 REASONS TO LOVE MALALA AFTER WATCHING THIS INSPIRING INTERVIEW:
1. MORE PAKISTANI THAN MOST PAKISTANIS
She dreams of giving much more to Pakistan than the country could ever give her. Still misses her roots and can not wait till she can actually come back and work for her own people. Even a bullet could not alter her love or make her bad mouth the country, which further proves her patriotism.
2. SPREADS THE REAL MEANING OF ISLAM
While most people give Islam a bad name, she chooses her fame and popularity to correct the image and spread the right meaning of the religion. She tells people that Islam means peace and tolerance, she tells them about the book of Allah! Quran starts with the word IQRA, which means read! How can a religion which tells you to read be against education? Islam is more in favor of equality and woman’s rights than any other religion.
3. WORKS FOR WOMEN EMPOWERMENT
Education being the focal point of everything that Malala is about, she speaks volumes about the importance of women empowerment and feminism. She has a Malala Fund through which she can bring a change in educating the girls of Pakistan. Not only for Pakistan,but Malala speaks for women all around the globe. She doesn’t just want to be an inspiration for a movie, or a famous personality, she wishes to be a true movement. Even Emma Watson, who has a campaign of her own ( He for She) has faith in Malala and her fund.
4. HUMBLE HUMAN BEING
Still humble and true to her roots and values, Malala is the same dupatta clad young girl from Swat. International fame did not alter her simple personality. She hates being treated like a celebrity and enjoys the life of a common man. The fact that her teachers treat her just like any other student makes her more happy than all the fame and glory.
5. A TRUE INSPIRATION FOR THE YOUTH
She tells the youth that age is just a number and that you’re never too young to bring the change you want to see in the world. She gives her own example in this case, who knew a child being stopped from going to school could make it to winning the Nobel Peace Prize one day? Do not underestimate yourself, start today and do not wait till its too late.
