By Biya Haq | 28 Jan, 2019

Now, this, is a challenge.

Malala, our nation’s sweetheart, has been regarded as one of the strongest women in Pakistan.

Not only in the way she handled her tragic incident when she was just eleven years old, but also in the way that she represents our country every single day, fighting for the education of our young girls and boys.

And thanks to one of her recent blog posts, the gravity of Malala’s life just ten years ago, makes this belief even stronger.

On her blog, Malala posted her very own, ‘ Ten-year challenge,’ and it has been one of the most powerful posts in the challenge so far.

In her post, Malala wrote that she too was enjoying seeing everyone’s ‘ten-year challenges,’ watching their childhoods unfold all over social media and seeing famous people before they were actually famous. She said that the posts of events that happened ten years ago, sparked her own memories of her own life, ten years ago.

“A frightening voice on the radio, spreading across the valley. “From January 15, girls will not be allowed to attend schools,” said Mullah Shah Doran, a local Taliban leader. “Educating girls is ‘un-Islamic.’

She spoke of how a decade ago, the place she called home was no longer a place of peace and serenity, but a war zone.

She went on to reference a diary she had given to the BBC that had been published. She spoke of the entries she made ten years ago, entries that reminded her of how she felt at the time. She read what she wrote in those days, leaving her school as if knowing she would never come back to it.

And perhaps what was chilling most of all, was the fact that two very important dates to Malala did in fact stretch ten years, ten years exactly.

She continued by using her voice to explain to leaders possibly listening worldwide, that the future of this planet depends on the present day learning our girls and other kids receive today.

She finished the challenge by saying one line,

Though Malala may have the voice and platform to reach millions of people all around the world, we are all as equally capable of wanting a change. Whether it’s the ice caps or education, if you care about something deeply, a cause or an initiative, it is in your own hands to push to bring about that change. As Malala said, it’s up to all of us.
