March 8th has been celebrated as International Women’s Day. The design of this day is to honor, celebrate, and encourage women to do what they love and the achievements by women in the past. There is only one book I could think of blogging about today. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and co-author Christina Lamb she is able to tell her story.
Malala starts out by telling her story about her early childhood in Pakistan, her family, and her love for education. Suddenly, her life is changed when she is shot in the head for advocating for girls education. This tragic and scary event did not stop Malala from doing what she loved. After recovering from a gunshot wound to the head, she became a world wide icon. In the book she describes her transition from small town girl to famed advocate. Today, her book still inspires many young girls to get an education with her story still being admired by many.
