Malala Pointed out Unpretentiously about the Difference in Fame!
“I was not a television celebrity or actor you know. So even the support and fame I was receiving were quite different. It was Malala, you’re an inspiration to us, we admire you. So, for me, it was like thank you so much for your support, and thank you for standing up with me. And if they would ask for a picture then yes, of course, why not?”
How it was like to have death threats at the age of 14? Khanna questioned,
“For me, that life was the worst I could imagine. Not being educated meant being pushed into child marriage, and becoming more vulnerable to domestic violence. That’s why I started speaking for my rights to go to school and for the rights of all the girls in Swat valley. For an 11-year-old girl to come to this realization that I need to speak for everyone, not just me, is a quantum leap. I do not remember my gun-shot incident much, and it’s good that I do not remember. After the global support, my research concluded that “if we educate all girls and give them 12 years of education, it adds 30 trillion dollars to the global economy.”
Twinkle asked how it feels you be a famous student, to which Malala answered:
Moving on, Malala described her idea of fun and said:
Reflecting on her struggles in the past, Malala shared:
”It was announced on the FM radio by the Taliban spokesperson that from the 15th of January 2009, no girl can go out and go to school. I was 11, and schools were shut down for girls because people did not believe in women’s rights. As a woman, not getting an education means becoming more vulnerable to early marriages”. The uneducated woman is more vulnerable to become a victim of domestic violence and more evils. A life that way was the worst thing. That’s why I started speaking for my rights and the rights of the girls in Swat Valley”.
