Sisters are doing it for themselves – Getting Educated and Ready To Change the World


By now you know that “It’s easy for us to recognize that a 17 year-old-girl who survived a terror attack against her life and against education for women, and that has spread the word about vital issues widely, receiving increasing support for her cause, deserves to be lauded with such a prize”

Malala was shot by the Taliban for trying to get an education. To her parents credit, they supported her in her quest for education. It has paid off tremendously and encouraged young women the world over to aspire to getting an education.

I commend her on her accomplishment.
