Malala Yousafzai

I have visited girls in favelas, slums, refugee camps and war zones. The hardest thing is to see a girl nearly my age, with all the dreams and aspirations that I have, stuck in a situation she didn’t create and unable to choose her own future.

Today is International Day of the Girl. Let’s make it more than just feminist T-shirts and hashtags. If we truly believe “the future is female” or that “girls run the world,” we need to support girls on the front lines of the fight for education and equality.

This week my portrait, by artist @shirin__neshat, was added to the National Portrait Gallery in London. I hope it will remind visitors that girls everywhere are fighting for change in their communities and countries — their stories must also be heard. Many thanks to Shirin for her beautiful work and Dr. @nicholascullinan, the team at @nationalportraitgallery and @outsetart for welcoming me.

So happy to be back in #Canada today! Took a boat ride down the Ottawa River, tried a BeaverTail and spoke with Prime Minister @justinpjtrudeau about advancing initiatives for girls’ education. 🇨🇦❤️🇨🇦

I started blogging at age 11. It was a way for me to share my challenges, my dreams, my world - and a way to let others know what girls in my community were facing. Today I want to help girls like me share their stories. Please subscribe to Assembly - a for girls, by girls platform - to meet a new generation of young leaders. Link in my bio.
