I Am Malala: Literary Analysis Malala Yousafzai was a talented and brave young woman who had one goal in life: to get an education and encourage others to do the same. Born in Pakistan, Malala did not grow up with many resources, but she was lucky enough to have a father that shared the same goal as her. At the young age of fifteen, she was shot in the face by the Taliban for standing up for girls’ rights to an education. Although the recovery time was long and hard, the Taliban did not silence her as she continued her campaign. This eventually led her to opening her own school in Yemen and writing the novel I Am Malala. As someone who highly values education and bravery, her story made me interested in learning more about her culture, family, and experiences.

I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai is a book where the 16 year old Pakistani girl named Malala lives in a country where women have no rights. No rights for education, no rights to do what they want and many other things. Most part of the women didn't fight for their rights, but Malala was different she wanted to study. So she was fighting to have an education. However the talibans (Islamic Group) who are against rights for females didn't like it so they did something really bad... The amazing style of writing of this young woman and the powerful plot is the reason why I extremely recommend this book for readers who like to experience many different feelings.
