We Day: Malala Yousafzai video script
Video script co-written for WE Day’s #WeAreSilent Campaign with in partnership with Malala Yousafzai
I come from Swat Valley, Pakistan.
A region where rifles are fired to celebrate the birth of a son, but daughters are hidden away
behind a certain. Where I grew up girls were afraid to go to school, but I’m not afraid.
I believe that education is a universal human right.
I believe that one child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world.
Schools were attacked, I still went and I spoke out.
We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.
I was shot on a Tuesday at lunch time.
One bullet. One bullet. One bullet.
One gunshot heard around the world, but here I stand.
I am Malala.
