Today is Malala day, so in honor of her example to us all, I will have sign making materials at class tonight for anyone who wants to take a photo with their sign using Malala's hashtag: #StrongerThan _________
After being shot in the head by the Taliban for wanting to go to school and surviving, Malala and her father created the Malala Fund to help girls go to school all over the world. Today is her birthday and thus, Malala Day came to be.
Her hash tag examples are: #StrongerThan Violence, Poverty, Fear, but you will just fill in the blank for yourself... I'll have the art supplies that we need.
Here's a link to her website: http://malalafund.org/
and to a wonderful video of her speaking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rNhZu3ttIU&list=PLHOozHd3fvAFqozY4S19QA9Lxw2jh2V62
I hope to see you tonight!
