How did you spend your 16th birthday?
Exerpts from Malala’s July 12, 2013 speech to the United Nations
"Malala Day is not my day. Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who has raised their voice for their rights. There are hundreds of human rights activists and social workers who are not only speaking for their rights, but who are struggling to achieve their goal of peace, education and equality."
"Let us wage a global struggle against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism. Let us pick up, let us pick up our books and our pens, they are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first. Thank you."
Today, July 12 is Malala’s birthday. Happy 17th Birthday Malala!
