Hers isn't a run-off-the-mill story that you get to read everyday. A life wherein a normal 16-year-old will find it hard to fathom. Her name Malala (which means grief-stricken) is like an admonition of the kind of life that will ensue. Most of us know her story. Malala Yousafzai reminds me of the Phoenix. Not to be silenced by oppression, she reinvented and recreated herself. From the ashes,she rose. Malala is a living proof that with courage and determination, you can make a difference. A truly remarkable soul, a warrior battling for knowledge empowerment and making an egotistical world realize that a woman has a distinct place in the sun. Thank you for the inspiration and in my book, you are the "bravest girl in the world".

Malala is truly an incredible inspiration to all...not only is she not a victim, she is a survivor who inspires others and has remained true to her cause...to see that all girls have an opportunity to be educated...I loved her comment that if the Taliban confronted her, she would suggest that their girls should have the opportunity for an education too!

PEACE!

I watched her interview with Christiane Amanpour and this comment really touched my heart. " The Talibs can shoot down my body but they can never shoot down my dreams" Very intelligent and brave young lady. She inspired not only the girls but men and women,young and old alike. May her tribe increase. Thanks again,Phinnie! Take care!
