He Named Me Malala Review

Eleven weeks ago I read a story that resonated somewhere deep within me. This story was one of a girl. A girl named Malala. You have probably heard of her, as I thought I did, but, as I came to realise, I only began to understand her truly when I read her book; received her message; connected with her words, thoughts and ideas.

I am in absolute awe at Malala's spirit, wisdom and unwavering faith in the universe As I often find myself saying, and know to be true on all levels, it does not matter whether you are living in a country where there are frequent terrorist attacks. It is only the feeling of vulnerability that ever puts you into a vibrational harmony with that which you fear. I know Malala understood this concept deeply and applied it to her own life. That is why she was never afraid - and so when death and her seemed to come close, death did not want her. God is kind. All is well. We are one. Let the powerful force of something bigger and stronger than us dwell inside you.he named me malala dvd

The above review-of-sorts probably won't make much sense if you aren't familiar with Malala's story, but I am happy to announce that it has been turned into a film and 'He Named Me Malala' will be broadcast globally on Monday 29th February at 8pm EST / 7pm CST!

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

I absolutely loved the book and am super excited for the film's broadcast on television to spread Malala's message even further across the globe! Don't forget to like He Named Me Malala's page to keep up with the latest news.
