Fearless blogger: Malala Yousufzai
I hope you all may have been hearing about Malala Yousufzai,14 or may be not. But this name is something that I was not able to forget or ignore. It was all over the news since few weeks. This young girl is a light of hope and inspiration that youth is being aware of their circumstances and thinks that one have to raise voice to change for the betterment of their own society and norms.
I was really shocked when I heard the news that she was shot into head and neck by Talibans for her fearless act to write against them and defending the right of girls to go to school.

Before the attack, Malala was in the process of starting a charity, the Malala Education Development Organization, to promote female education in northern Pakistan. Other organizations are also working in the region to turn her dream into a reality for all girls in Pakistan.
Her plight has inspired people far beyond her home in the Taliban-heavy Swat Valley. Large crowds were rallying around the world to show support for Malala and her cause.
She is the Pakistan’s first to get peace prize for writing blogs regarding the rights for girls to get education.
The Taliban reportedly had destroyed more than 200 schools and ordered all girls’ schools shut down when Malala slowly emerged from obscurity. In 2009, she started writing a blog for the BBC under a pseudonym, talking about her dreams for the future and how the Taliban were pushing those aspirations further and further out of reach.
