Blog walking! — My nice experience

Assalamu'alaikum ^_^

Hello my dearest friends! How are you? I hope you all have a great weekend 😊.

Last week I read some blog from my friends' blog. Today I will share my experience after I read their blog. What did I get there?

Certainly I got many informations from my friends' blog. I learn many something new from their blog. Then I got some book recommendations that I think maybe good to read because their review is interested me to read that book too. 
I will share the book recommendations with you that I have read from my friends' blog. I hope it is useful to you all that is searching book to read.

The first is "The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg. It it is an inspiring book. We can learn that our habit can shaped if we do something continuously and regularly. I see that the success persons are someone who have good habit in their activities. If we want to be a success person too, let's change our bad habits into good habits! You all should read this book!

The second is "The Secret" by Rhona Byrne. This book is about philosophy of law, how live work, and motivational issue. Maybe you have to read that book if you all want to know about law.

The third is "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Charneige. I think if you want to learn about how we socialize and influence someone, you have to read this book!

The fourth is "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey. It is a self-improvement book. We can learn that the way we see the world is entirely based on our own perceptions. In order to change a given situation, we must change ourselves by change our perceptions. I can learn that I should have awareness to be proactive and responsible with all of my choices.

The last is "Totto-Chan: The Little Girl at the Window (1981) by Tetsuko Kuroyanagi. This book is about Totto-Chan that is hyperactive. Than she was labeled as a troublemaker by her teacher and was forced to leave school. I am very sad because Totto-Chan was dropped out from her school on the first day school.

That's all about my experience after I read my friends' blog. I hope you like it 😉.

Thank you for reading my blog and see you later on my next post! 🤗

Continue review I am Malala chapter 16-the last

Assalamu'alaikum
Hello guys! I hope you are happy in this weekend 😊
Today I will continue my review I am Malala Chapter 16 until the last chapter. Let's start!

Part 3: Three Girls, Three Bullets

Chapter 16: The Valley of Sorrows
Malala and her family come back to Mingora after three months. It is obvious that they were homesick and are happy to finally be back home. Malala start going to school although many schools and other buildings were destroyed with the evidence of the battles that were fought there. The prime of minister of Pakistan has promised that the Taliban have been cleared out of Swat. They are seemingly commited to helping the Americans fight the Taliban but actually it is effectively no different from Taliban— it's forces its citizents to live in a state of fear. Malala's father has no income to pay the teachers of Khusal School. Malala suggest that he talk to Abbas and he give donation for his school. Moreover, Taliban secretly living in the valley blow up more schools and kidnap people they judge to be dangerous to Islam. Several of Ziauddin's friends are mordered for protesting the Taliban in print. This chapter in the first make me happy because Malala came back home and Taliban has going out but actually they secretly still in the valley.

Chapter 17: Praying to Be Tall
Malala is one of the shortest girls in her class. She become more conscious of her shortness, she begins to lose some of the confidence that's made her a good public speaker and interviewee. In this chapter, Malala write that so many conspirations from government of Pakistan, America, and Taliban. Malala receives some exciting news; she got some award from some competition. She has won a great deal of money on only few months: more than a million rupees. Malala uses that money to rebuild school in Swat and to start and educational foundation whose goal is to provide free education for homeless children. I am very amazed to Malala because she can make the shortcomings become their strengths and still care for others.

Chapter 18: The Women and the Sea
Malala and her family have come to the sea side town of Karachi to visit aunty Najma. Malala traveled by plane to Karachi — this is the first time in her life. She also visits the tomb of Muhammed Ali Jinnah her idol, the founder of Pakistan. During her visit to Karachi she meets a reporter named Shehla Anjum who tearfully warns Malala that the Taliban have threadened to kill her. She and her family return to Swat, still shaken by the news that the Taliban want Malala dead.

Chapter 19: A Private Talibanisation
In this chapter, Ziauddin has found an anonymous note, addressed to "Muslim Brother" . The note— one of many that have been circulated recently—criticizes Ziauddin's schools for being "vulgar" and "obscene". The note arguing people to "ask the manager of the White Palace Hotel" for more information about "what these girls said." Ziauddin realozes that the manager has no information about the girls— the note is a bluff, design to make its readers assume the worst of Malala and her classmates. The Taliban are forced to make up lies about the girls of Malala's school and rely on the power of suggestion.

Chapter 20: Who is Malala
In this chapter, a math teacher at Malala's school, Miss Shazia tells that she's had a nightmare. In the nightmare, she saw Malala walking around with one of her leg bdly burned. Malala convinced that danger is coming her way, she begins praying more often. Malala comes to school as usual by bus. While she is riding the bus, two men stop the bus and one of them climb aboard. He ask, "Who is Malala?", But then he easily identifies her since she is not wearing a burqa. Then he shot Malala in the head.

Part 4: Between Life and Death

Chapter 21: 'God, I entrust her to you'

In this chapter Malala write about the condition after the Taliban shot her. Her parents are very sad. Someone called Ziauddin with the news that his daughter's school bus has just been attacked. Ziauddin rushes to the nearby hospital where he is crushed to find that his own daughter was one of the Taliban soldier's victim. Miraculously, the soldier's bullet didn't damage Malala's brain at all. Two other Malala's friends were also injured by the soldier's attacked, although their wounds are very slight.
Thank you for reading all of my review 😊 and see you on my next post. 🤗

Continue review I am Malala chapter 9-15

Assalamu'alaikum ^_^

Hello friends! How are you? I hope you have a great weekend 😊

In this time I would like to continue my review. Last week I have review the book I am Malala from chapter 1-8. Today, I will continue my review from 9-15.

Part 2: The Valley of Death
Chapter 9: Radio Mullah
In this chapter Malala write when she was ten y.o the Taliban came to the Swat Valley. The first time Malala saw the Taliban, she say that they resemble vampire like in Twilight books. The leader of Taliban is Maulana Fazlullah. In the beginning Fazlullah was very wise. He said that the people should stop to smoking and consume drugs, but actually he has ceritain intentions. He used his radio station (Radio Mullah) to broadcast his beliefs and influence many people. He instead that men should go outside and women should work all day at home. He closing down all beauty palors, banning barbers, and forbidding women from walking outside in the evening. He also stopped health workers giving polio drops, saying the vaccinations were an Amerika plot to make Muslim women infertile. Malala's father (Ziauddin) didn't enforcement this rule in his school. Then his friend (Hidayatullah) encouraged him to speak out against the Taliban laws. Ziauddin wrote a letter to the newspaper (the Daily Azadi), arguing that the Taliban were misinterpreting Al Qur'an.

Chapter 10: Toffees, Tennis Balls and the Buddhas of Swat
In this chapter, the Taliban start destroying everything and killing the people in Swat Valley where Malala lives for no reason other than fact that they are different. The Taliban are trying to control Swat Valley and hurt people, even destroy their people. It remains me that I need to be more thankful for the things I have and living in a safe place.

Chapter 11: The Clever Class
In this chapter was a dark time in Malala's life: the country was in chaos and she felt unsafe in her own town. She didn't confortable wearing her school uniform, since the uniform was a sign that she was being educated, and thus in the Taliban eyes dishonoring Allah. The Taliban blowing up school for girl almost everyday. At the same time Malala refuse to give up on her education as her Mother (Tor Pekai) did. She continues attending school, encouraged by both her father and mother. In response to the  escalating violence in Swat, Ziauddin and his group wanted to challenge Fazlullah's interpretations of Al Quran. At the end of 2008, Fazlullah's deputy made a sudden announcement that Ziauddin's girl's school would close. Malala didn't take this threat seriously but many of her friends believe that their lives would be in danger if they continued to attend school.

Chapter 12: The Bloody Square
In this chapter, the real violence is beginning, as women are killed in increasingly gruesome ways. There is remarkably little response to the Taliban atrocity in Pakistan because people are afraid that they themselves will be killed. Some of Ziauddin's friends in Islamabad organized a conference about religious freedom, but almost no one turns up, either to speak and listen. He continues to write articles criticizing the Taliban. Malala's mother worries if the Taliban come to hurt him and she begins sleeping with a knife under her pillow.

Chapter 13: The Diary of Gul Makai
In this chapter Malala write her first diary. She uses the pseudonym "Gul Makai" in BCC. She talks about her anxiety and reports a dream she had, in which the Taliban arrived by helicopter. Malala's words are published online. Ziauddin is in bad mood. He knows that he will be forced to shut down his school, since nobody will want to risk their lives to study.

Chapter 14: A Funny Kind of Peace
In early 2009 the school in Swat Valley reopen. Across Pakistan people are criticizing Fazlullah for banning women's education. In response, Fazlullah agrees to lift the ban for girl who are ten y.o or younger. Malala pretends to be younger then she really is in order to continue going to school. Several of her friends do so as well. Seventy percent of the valley is under the Taliban control.

Chapter 15: Leaving the Valley
In May 2009 Ziauddin makes a difficult decision to take his family out of Mingora to Shangla. The area has became too dangerous for a family to live in. In following weeks, Malala settles into her new life in Shangla. She gets up early to walk to school. She continues to give interviews with radio station.

That all about my review, thank you and see you on my next post. 🤗😉

Review Malala's book part one: Before the Taliban

Assalamu'alaikum ^_^

Hello everyone! I wish you have a nice weekend 😊. Today, I would like to tell you the review of novel I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban. This novel have five part. In this time, i will review part one and I will review part two on the next post. So, happy reading! 



PART I: Before the Taliban

Chapter 1: A Daughter Is Born
Malala explains that she was born at dawn (traditionally a sign of luck in her community), but many people in the village still felt sorry for her family because Malala was a girl. As she puts it, women in her country are seen as second-class citizens, fit only for making food and birthing more children.

One of the few people who come to celebrate Malala’s birth was her father’s cousin, Jehan Sher Khan Yousafzai. He gave Malala a “handsome gift of money.” He also brought with him a large family tree, showing the sons and fathers of Malala’s family. Malala’s father, Ziauddin, had an unusual reaction when his cousin brought the family tree. Instead of accepting it as a gift, he took a pen and drew a line to indicate Malala’s birth, even though she was a woman. Ziauddin insisted that Malala was special, and celebrated her birth with coins and fruit—gifts usually reserved for boys.

Malala is named after Malalai, a heroine of Afghanistan. Malala’s ethnic group, the Pashtuns, are divided between two countries, Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan. The Pashtuns obey a strict moral code of honor, which obligates them to treat all people with honor and respect. The Pashtuns are also a proud, warlike people. Malalai is a heroine to them because in the 1880s, she led the Pashtuns in a successful uprising against the British Empire. Malalai was only a teenager at the time, and she set aside married life to become a general and a warrior. British soldiers killed her, but her troops eventually defeated the British. To this day, monuments to Malalai are built in Afghanistan, and she’s a symbol of the native resistance to foreign aggression.

Malala continues explaining her culture. She lives in Swat Valley, a beautiful place full of fruit trees, rivers, and forests. In the winter, the villagers ski in the nearby mountains. Swat is currently a part of the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, in Pakistan. Formerly, Swat was an independent state, but following Indian independence in 1947, it became an autonomous state of Pakistan. The people of Swat use the Pakistan currency—the rupee—but nonetheless maintain an unusually large amount of cultural and political autonomy from Pakistan. Most of the people of Swat have never left their valley, even though the capital of Pakistan, Islamabad, is only a hundred miles away.
Malala and her family live in the village of Mingora, the largest town in Swat. Swat has been an Islamic town since the 11th century. Prior to this time, however, it was a Buddhist state, and there are still ruins of Buddhist temples in Swat. Malala has grown up surrounded by birds and other animals, enjoying the beauty of the valley and the surrounding Hindu Kush mountains.

Malala’s family is very poor. Despite founding the first school for girls in Mingora, Malala’s father and his family live in a shack. Nevertheless, Malala’s family frequently entertains visitors, cooking for them and spending time with them. Hospitality, Malala explains, is a crucial part of her culture. Malala’s brother, Khushal, is named after their father’s school, which he attends. Her youngest brother, Atal, is seven years younger than she. Her family is very small by Swati standards. Malala’s father, unlike the majority of Swati men, never hits his wife, whose name is Tor Pekai. Malala notes that the people in her community aspire to have paler skin. Malala’s father, for instance, was always ashamed of his dark skin as a child. Only after he married Tor Pekai did he overcome his shame. Tor Pekai and Ziauddin had an unusual marriage, since they married out of love, not social obligation. This is highly rare in Pakistan, Malala notes.

Malala continues describing her family. Tor Pekai is very religious, and always prays five times a day, as is the Muslim custom. Malala’s father was rarely around when Malala was growing up: Ziauddin was busy writing poetry, organizing literary societies, and taking measures to preserve the environment in the valley. Although he is from an impoverished village, Ziauddin used his intelligence and hard work to become successful. Malala grew up respecting the power of language, largely as a result of her father’s influence.

Malala’s family is descended from the Yousafzai, a noted Pashtun tribe who celebrated combat as well as poetry. The Yousafzai feuded with one another constantly, but in 1917, one Yousafzai warrior managed to impose order on the Swati Valley. His son, Jehanzeb, brought great wealth and prosperity to the Valley. In 1969, the year Malala’s father was born, the Valley firmly united with Pakistan. Malala thinks of herself as Swati first, then Pashtun, then Pakistani.

Growing up, Malala noticed that, as a woman, she was restricted from traveling where she wanted. From an early age, however, Malala decided that she wouldn’t let the sexism of her society stifle her. Her father encouraged her to be “free as a bird.”

Chapter 2: My Father the Falcon 
Malala’s father, she notes, had an ironic curse: although he loved poetry and words, he had a horrible stutter that made it difficult for him to communicate. His stutter was worsened by the fact that his own father (Malala’s grandfather), Rohul Amin, had a beautiful, clear voice. Rohul was a popular theology teacher, widely praised for his electrifying speeches and sermons. Rohul took his son to get various treatments for his stutter, but none of them worked. Despite his speech impediment, Ziauddin attended the best schools in the valley, a luxury that didn’t extend to his sisters (Malala’s aunts). Growing up, Ziauddin was also fed better than his sisters. Ziaddun was able to listen to his father discuss politics and current events, as Rohul had met many of Pakistan’s greatest political leaders, including Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the founder of the country.

Malala explains some of her country’s history. Pakistan has already amassed a long list of military coups, despite being founded fairly recently. When Malala’s father was only 8 years old, a general, Zia ul-Haq, seized power and executed the Prime Minister. The United States refused to send more foreign aid to Pakistan, since it saw Zia as a reprehensible dictator. Zia made life harder for women, weakening their rights in court and the political sphere. One result of this was that more women were raped, and their rapists were increasingly set free after trial.

As a young man, Ziauddin gravitated towards the principle of jihad. He prayed for war between the Soviets and the Afghanis, so that he would have a chance to prove his bravery. Shortly after his “conversion” to jihad, Ziauddin met Faiz Mohammed, the brother of Tor Pekai, his future wife. Faiz Muhammed helped to convince Ziauddin to reconsider his desire for war and violence. As a young man, Ziauddin also dealt with bullying from his cousins, since he was short and dark-skinned—two qualities that were thought to symbolize mediocrity.

When Ziauddin was in his early twenties, he stunned his father by signing up for a public speaking competition. Although Rohul was skeptical of his son’s stutter, he wrote a speech for his son to deliver. Ziauddin practiced for weeks, and when he delivered the speech, it was a great success. Ziauddin was awarded the top prize. This, Ziauddin would often tell Malala, was the first thing he’d done that had made Rohul smile. Afterwards, Ziauddin entered many other rhetoric competitions, usually winning or earning a prize. Rohul became enormously proud of his son’s success. In honor of his rhetorical skills, Rohul nicknamed him “Ziauddin Shaheen,” which means “Ziauddin, the falcon.” Ziauddin politely refused this nickname, since a falcon is a "cruel bird."

Chapter 3: Growing up in a School
Malala notes that her mother began and finished school at the age of six. At first Tor Pekai was proud of being the only girl in her school, but ultimately, she couldn’t force herself to continue—she saw her female friends playing every day, and couldn’t convince herself that there was any point to learning. After Tor Pekai married Ziauddin, however, she began to regret her decision. Her husband was extremely knowledgeable, and she couldn’t keep up with him. Largely because of Tor Pekai’s encouragement, Ziauddin founded a school for girls.

Malala explains that Ziauddin’s decision to pursue education and poetry as a career disappointed Rohul. Rohul had wanted his son to become a doctor, but Ziauddin’s abilities in math and science weren’t strong enough. When the time came for Ziauddin to attend Jehanzeb College, the finest school in Swat, Rohul refused to pay for his education—if Ziauddin wasn’t going to become a doctor, he decided, there was no point. Ziauddin feared that, without any further education, he would end up teaching in Sewoor—a typical career path for people in Swat, and not a particularly desirable one for Pashtuns. Pashtuns, Malala explains, look down on the people of Sewoor because of their dark skin.

Malala continues describing her parents’ history. Ziauddin, now married to Tor Pekai, set to work improving his new school. Tor Pekai helped out by painting the school and installing lights. Despite the new couple’s happiness and optimism, the school continued to lose money. Ziauddin couldn’t afford to pay his teachers money, and eventually the jeweler who had sold Ziauddin the bangles he gave to Tor Pekai came to Mingora, demanding money. Ziauddin had no choice but to give the jeweler his jewels back—this humiliated him. The school endured more problems: floods, power shortages, and teachers who quit in the middle of the year.

Throughout the difficult early period in his school’s history, Ziauddin remained optimistic. He advertised for his school across the valley. It was during this period that Malala was born. She grew up in her father’s schoolhouse, observing the students and the teachers. When Malala was young, Ziauddin’s friend and partner, Hidayatullah, left the school to found one of his own. Ziauddin accepted Hidayatullah’s departure. This occurred in the latter half of the year 2001. It was during this time that terrorists bombed the Twin Towers in New York—an event that Malala was only dimly aware of. Nobody in Pakistan, Malala concludes, could have predicted how September 11 would change life in their part of the world.

Chapter 4: The village
Malala’s relationship with Rohul Amin has none of the venom and competitiveness implicit in Rohul’s relationship with Ziauddin. Grandfathers are often gentler with their grandchildren than with their children, and also Rohul might not have as high expectations for Malala because she’s a girl.

From an early age, Malala is conscious of being different from the people around her. Unlike the vast majority of her relatives, she reads books and celebrates women’s rights to education and equality. At the same time, Malala feels an unshakeable sense of connection to her community—both to the people who don’t like her at all, and to the land itself. These early chapters of Malala’s life have an almost mythical tone to them—she seems like a child of the valley, tied to her people by an almost supernatural bond.

Malala confronts the paradox of her existence in this final section. She feels boundless love for her friends, her neighbors, and her community, but she also can’t force herself to respect a culture that treats women as second-class citizens or even as currency. Malala will return to this paradox many times in her book: whenever she feels especially close to Pakistan, some event will remind her that her home is still, in many ways, “foreign” to her.

Chapter 5: Why I Don't Wear Earrings and Pashtuns Don't Say Thank You
Malala, determined to be a moral person, spent much of her childhood running errands for other people. Malala looked up to an older girl at school, whose name was Fatima. Fatima made speeches before hundreds of onlookers, usually in English—English, Malala notes, was the language of prestige and wisdom among Pakistani people. Eager to impress her father, Malala decided to enter a public speaking competition, just as her father had done when he was a young man. The topic for the competition was “Honesty is the best policy.” Malala made a speech written by her father, as was the custom. When she made her speech before a large audience, she was extremely nervous. At the end of the competition she came in second, and her best friend Moniba won. Malala wasn’t hurt by her loss, as she remembered the words of Abraham Lincoln: “Teach him how to gracefully lose.” She resolved to put all her effort into her speeches in the future, and to speak “from the heart.”

Chapter 6: Children of the Rubbish Mountain
Malala was moved by her father’s description of the child in the rubbish mountain, and she begged her father to offer the girl a free place at his school. Ziauddin agreed—over the years, he’d given away many free places because Malala and Tor Pekai asked him to do so. At this point, Ziauddin’s school had more than 800 students, and three locations. More than 100 students attended the school for free. One side effect of this was that the richer students left Ziauddin’s school, as their parents didn’t want them associating with the poor. Nevertheless, Ziauddin remained a powerful, respected man in his community, despite the fact that he had little money and few family connections. 

Chapter 7: The Mufti Who Tried to Close our School
Near Malala’s school, there lived a tall, handsome mufti (scholar of Islam) named Ghulamullah. Malala’s father sensed that Ghulamullah didn’t approve of the notion of a school for women. “He was right,” Malala notes. Ghulamullah eventually accused Ziauddin of running a haram (blasphemous) school, and of corrupting women against Allah.

Ghulamullah held a public meeting to discuss the virtues of Ziauddin’s school. He invited Ziauddin to this meeting, where he accused Ziauddin of perverting the Quran. Ziauddin calmly argued that the Quran encouraged women to improve their minds and souls, citing passages from the book to back up his argument. Eventually, he and Ghulamullah agreed to a compromise: Ziauddin would build a new, private gate through which the girls would enter the school. This way, men wouldn’t see women entering the school. Ghulamullah didn’t like this compromise, however, since he was aiming to shut down Ziauddin’s school altogether.

Chapter 8: The Autumn of the Earthquake
Malala was about thirteen years old, there was an earthquake in Swat. While Mingora was largely spared from damage, the earthquake did huge damage to nearby cities like Kashmir and Kabul. Children and the elderly died in the disaster. In the aftermath, Malala’s family campaigned to raise money to help the families of the victims of the earthquake.

In response to the earthquake, the United States sent helicopters and aid to Pakistan. At the same time, the JuD (Jamaat-ul-Dawa), a fundamentalist group, took in thousands of children who had been orphaned by the earthquake. As a result, these children grew up believing in the teachings of the JuD, including the idea that women had no rights. Mullahs preached that the earthquake was a sign that Pakistan had angered Allah, and that Muslims should embrace the Quran with new passion.

That's all about review about Malala's book of part one. See you on next post 🤗

I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban

Assalamu’alaikum ^_^
Hello everyone! How are you? I wish you have a nice day 😊

In this time I will tell you about synopsis of the book. Do you ever read I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban? If you have never read that book, I recommend you to read it! Okay, I will give you the description of the book I am Malala for your reference. I hope you enjoy reading this post 😊



Title: I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban
Author: Malala Yousafzai (1997) and Christina Lamb
Page: 327 pages
Synopsis: 

"I am Malala" is the true story of a girl from Pakistan named Malala who campaign for woman’s right to education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, She was shot by the Taliban in a bus on her way home from school. Two men boarded the school bus. “Who is Malala?” they asked and fired gun shots; two lodged in Malala’s head. The shooting triggered a complex series of negotiations involving prominent political figures from Pakistan and England. It is a powerful book. Malala’s story is remarkable in light of women’s role in her culture and the groups fighting to oppress women. She survived the attack and still carries out valuable work fighting for access to education for all children through the Malala Fund. Malala is the youngest candidate for Nobel world peace.

Malala was born from depressed Pashtun family when she got a daughter. She was born in the right family, his father was very happy to welcome her birth and believed she would be a figure that could not be underestimated. His father was a persistent person who founded a school for all people as his concern for education. Malala, which can be said to be a girl who grew up in school because her father's school is a playground that every day she visits. So, she inherited his father's love of education, he was very concerned with education, even the children whose lives were among the piles of garbage also wanted to be invited to school. In fact, when the Taliban tried to close his father's school, Malala was the first person who wholeheartedly defended his father to keep his school in order to always provide educational needs for his students.

When Malala ten years old, the Taliban entered her homeland, Swat valley. The Taliban is a terrible figure for the people of the Swat valley. The Taliban is a threat that can kill them anytime. The Taliban were also the ones who reduced children's dreams to achieve education. School closure, school bombings, and the killing of Pakistani military groups, that is what the Taliban did in their valley.

Having fled the valley to take refuge was experienced by her with her parents and two younger siblings. In that difficult situation Malala and her father continued to strive for education. For example in various speeches, his father always conveyed the importance of education and said that school was an absolute necessity for the whole community. Not only his father, Malala, who was twelve years old at the time, in her speech at a meeting with ambassador Richard Holbrooke, the American envoy to Pakistan-Afghanistan, Malala expressed his emotions. "Dear ambassador, I beg you to help us, girls, to get education", she said. Malala's courage in shouting the importance of education at various meetings or speeches finally triggered the anger of the Taliban to look for the figure of Malala. That's why the Taliban shot her.

We can learn so much from her book. Malala outlines in charming detail the history and culture of her beloved homeland in the Swat valley of northern Pakistan. She shows a great respect for her culture. She also reflects on how she balances traditional values and practices with her beliefs in the rights of women to have equal opportunities to men, especially for education. She also recounts the rise of Taliban in Pakistan and the shocking atrocities that occurred during that time.

Malala’s strong spirit and faith shines throughout the book. She overcomes many challenges, even before she was shot by the Taliban. She understood the value of her education and did not want anyone to take that away from her or anyone else. She brought her experience of life under the Taliban to the world through a diary she wrote for the BBC using the pseudonym Gul Makai. She also spoke with her father at many events in Pakistan. She continued her struggle despite personal threats from the Taliban against her and her family. 

"I am Malala" is an important book for anyone who cares about gender equality, world peace and extremism to read. This book was extremely inspiring not only women but also shock the world. So, there is no reason not to fight for education. She is Malala who has shared her great story. If you curious to read all of the content of Malala's book, my advice is to immediately have this novel to get extraordinary inspiration.

Thank you for reading this post. If you want to give review about Malala's book, you can write on comment column 😊.
See you on my next post 🤗
