Friday Inspiration: Malala Yousafzai


by Rachel Braman

The other day in class my International Child Rights professor showed us a video clip that brought tears to my eyes.  Luckily I had already watched this video in private and did not have to break down in tears in front of the whole class.  This clip is the speech that Malala Yousafzai gave when she addressed the UN Youth Assembly on “Malala Day”, which was also her 16th birthday, July 12, 2013.

If this girl can stand up and make a difference after being shot, just think of what you and I can do.

Be the change.
