I Am Malala

Malala Yousafzai’s I am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban

“Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons.”

This is a book I have been wanting to read for quite some time because of its relevance and impact. Also, I feel like this is the book you would expect a Peace Corps volunteer to be reading, so you are welcome for feeding into the stereotype. Overall, I find the story to be incredibly inspiring. Peace Corps Perú is a “Let Girls Learn” location, so it gave me an extra push to find opportunities in Perú where I can help girls understand the value in our educations
