If you haven’t heard her name, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard her story – at least part of it. This new documentary He Named Me Malala shows so much more – an intimate look into the life of the youngest nobel peace prize, Malala Yousafzai. Such an extraordinary story of a girl who says she’s just ‘ordinary’.

If you’ve heard the story of a 15-year-old girl in Pakistan who was shot in the forehead on her school bus. She was targeted, along with her father, for supporting girl’s rights to education. She spoke out, knowing the risk, knowing it would make her a target, yet with a bravery I can’t even imagine.

Despite all odds, she survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally, and has co-founded the Malala Fund. She travels all over to meet with presidents and other important figures, speak at and visit schools, all while trying to get through high school herself with good grades!

There’s a very interesting story behind her name, but I don’t want to spoil it – I’ll save that for the movie 🙂 Let’s just say she certainly lives up to the legend!

Done by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (Waiting for Superman, An Inconvenient Truth), the film shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls all across the world. Even though Malala says she IS just an ordinary girl, she’s already caused many waves towards more rights for girls everywhere.

Her youngest brother sure cracks me up!
