She Was Shot by Taliban for Standing Up for Girls’ Education #HeNamedMeMalala


To stand up for what you believe in is hard to do, especially if you live in a country that doesn’t believe in freedom or equal rights. This is the story of Malala, a teenager who was shot in the head by the Taliban when she stood up for education for girls.  Malala miraculously survived the gunshot and has sparked an outcry for supporters around the world.

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Nat Geo. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

He Named Me Malala

Malala didn’t allow the threats and life threatening gunshot wound of the Talaban to silence her. This brave girl has gone on, with her father to advocate girls’ education around the world. Here she is at the Kisaruni Girls School in Massai Mara, Kenya.


Malala’s inspirational story is available in both book format and an upcoming movie.  Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us on the bigscreen how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide.

Here is a picture with DP Erich Roland, Director Davis Guggenheim, Malala Yousafzai, and Zia Yousafzai at the Jordan/Syrian border for the Malala movie.
