Decent Essays

Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan. As a child, she became an advocate for girls' education, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. On October 9, 2012, a gunman shot Malala when she was traveling home from school. The bullet penetrated the left side of her head; as result she was rushed to an immediate care hospital in Peshawar, Pakistan. Fortunately, she survived and was able to recover back to her full strength. Several months later and to this day, she continues to speak out to the public about her strong belief for girls’ education, and she does this through the strength and courage that she gained after her horrific incident. One of her most famous speeches that she gave was delivered to the United Nations on a day that was dedicated for her, Malala Day. Malala who was only 17, stood up before the people and delivered what was known as her most courageous speeches at such a young age.
Analysis 1
Malala’s purpose of her speech is to inform the audience on the right for education. The audience of many men and women varies of all ages in the room she performed, but also the audience that was watching online in which was being streamed live. Malala’s main purpose was deeper than just trying to inform a group of people how important education is for the youth. Instead, she illustrates how in her case, Pakistan, limits the right of public education to the people, and this violates in which she believes to be equality.
