“Let us pick up our books and our pens,” I said. “They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world." Pen is mightier than a sword. Books have the power to change the world. They enlighten people, make them aware of things. What differentiated Malala from the rest of the girls was she was a bookworm. She loved reading especially science because it taught practical things. If you have knowledge, no one can dupe you. When everybody around her was gullible enough to follow the orders, she stood up for her right to study. She knew no one can defeat them if they study. Even when the time came to leave her house, she wanted to take her books over clothes. Sadly there was not enough space and she left them with a heavy heart.
I " I raise my voice-not so that I can shout, but so those without a voice can be heard.”
Malala`s voice represents the agonies of all the girls in Pakistan. Her dream is that one day every girl holds a pen. As long as they are illiterate they will remain poor. Since a small age she started giving interviews. It involved risks but she did it. She braved the threats so that the world can take note of her and her voice reaches to the world. Had she been silent, the world would have never known Malala. The world would have been oblivious to the sufferings of girls in Pakistan.
