From the age of 10, Malala Yousafzai has campaigned for the rights of girls to receive an education. Using a pseudonym, she wrote a blog for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule and her views on promoting education for girls. In October 2012, the then 15-year-old Malala was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot while traveling home on her school bus. Miraculously she survived.

Malala, who turned eighteen this year, is now a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the Co-Founder of The Malala Fund, a non-profit organisation whose work around the world focuses on the rights of girls to quality education. He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of this extraordinary young girl’s life.
