Malala Yousafzai belongs to Swat, Pakistan and this star is known for her bravery of surviving a gun shot by the Taliban after speaking out against their oppression. But this couldn’t stop this smart girl. She fought for her rights and for other girls who lack basic needs of life!
Malala Yousafzai, an activist was featured in a story called Decade of Youth rising, part of a series which focus on the changes that our youth can bring to this world!
Malala truly believes that the youth can bring change through their activism as all of them rooted for the movements like Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, the Fight for Fifteen, March for Our Lives, Slut Walk, Youth Climate Strike, and others.
MALALA ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGES AND SUSTAINABLE ADAPTATIONS:
For me to see millions and millions of young people, not just in the US, not just in the UK – the so-called developed countries – but from all across the world, in Pakistan, in India, in Kenya, you see these young girls, especially women that are coming forward, and you also see older people in the crowds – I think that’s when you realise how powerful the voices of these young people can be. And I think awareness is important. That’s the first step towards a change.
INTERNET OVER CLIMATE CHANGES:
As much as youth emphasis on avoiding unnecessary use of plastic, mass fashion, buying unnecessary things it feels like they are going to be the real change makers in next coming years. We’ve seen brands like Gucci and others talking about sustaining fashion and many other socialites taking it to internet to avoid usage of plastic, banning use of plastic in some places.
A small girl, Greta Thunberg’s video took internet by storm while talking about global warming!
MALALA YOUSAFZAI’S ACHIEVEMENTS:
To quote some of Malala’s achievements, become a global activist, cofounded the Malala Funded School, and wrote a book. At 17 years won a Nobel Peace Prize. She made it to Oxford University, where she is studying philosophy, politics, and economics.
Now that she has added another feather to her hat as a vogue teen star. Malala looks nothing but an epitome of beauty, grace and elegance. Wherever she goes, she takes her pride with herself and not forgets her culture and that can be seen in her shoot. Malala wore a long gown with solid colors blocking and a stall over her head.
