Malala shows us how it’s done

We have been inspired and awed by this young woman’s example of standing up for education regardless of the danger to herself. Here she demonstrates the courage to speak to a huge audience and the power of passion for your subject.

English is not her native language and few 16-year-olds would face a crowd of this size with such poise. Her pauses are inspiring. Observe her poise as she stands at the end during a standing ovation by the audience. Her focus was obviously not on herself — which allowed us to absorb her message without worrying about her.
