She Is Changing The World In The Face Of Danger Daily

In our lifetime we get to learn about some of history's most influential people, people who have made a big difference in the world for the better of mankind. It amazes me sometimes what the motivation is behind these people. Why did they do what they did. How they got so passionate.

On Monday, February 29th, there is going to be a very special presentation on the National Geographic Channel, presented by 21st Century Fox of one person who is influencing the world. It is an exclusive broadcast premiere of He Named Me Malala.

I was privileged to be a part of an exclusive pre-premiere of this amazing movie in my home. I can say that I am very glad that I was a part of it. I was familiar with the story of Malala, but not the whole story, not the details that really made her who she is today. I was deeply moved by the passion of Malala and her father. She is committed to seeing the lives of people around her change for the better through education and knowledge. There is power in knowledge and she knows it.

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

Please, take a peek at what you can expect by watching this movie:

This movie is making an impact around the world and will be shown in 171 countries and in 45 languages thanks to National Geographic and 21st Century Fox. Who knows what kind of an impact this can make in the lives of girls, boys and women across the globe who have been denied a chance to have an education.

But you can help even more than just watching this movie. For every tweet with the hashtag of #withMalala, a $1 donation will be made to the Malala Fund to help further the education of girls and boys around the world by 21st Century Fox.
