If Superwoman had a mission to bring education to all the children of the world, that would be Malala Yousafzai. She is an astoundingly strong and passionate young woman who started this fight at an age when most kids are celebrating their elementary school graduation. At the age of 11, Malala anonymously wrote for BBC about the Taliban taking rule of her hometown and denying young girls access to education. However, once her identity was revealed and she began speaking publicly, her safety was in jeopardy.
At a mere 15 years young, Malala was tragically targeted and shot in the head by the Taliban while riding the school bus, simply because she believed in her right and the right of all children to have an education. It’s hard to even fathom. Thankfully, with quick action and continued support, she survived and is STILL fighting for that right today. Check out the Malala Fund, it’s the real-real deal.
Just one year later, Malala’s chart-topping autobiography, I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban, was published. It’s a really GREAT read, but don’t take our word for it - check out the rave reviews by the millions of people that have purchased a copy.
Malala’s altruistic efforts didn’t go unnoticed and at the ripe age of 17, she became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for “the struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”
The 'Brave One' necktie is designed in a playful pink to represent the youth of Malala as well as the headscarf that she dons on the cover of her award-winning book, I am Malala. It is a reminder that although she has experienced more than many adults, she is still a vibrant young woman with an exceptionally bright future.
