autobioThe schoolgirl releases her autobiography, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban. The book is co-written with Christina Lamb, a British journalist. It details the Taliban’s attack on the school bus she was riding where she was shot in the head. The book also describes the life in Swat valley, Pakistan under the rule of the Taliban. Other details about her life include her father briefly considering becoming a jihadist when he was young, and her culture shock and eventual adjustment in the way of life in England.

I was spared for a reason — to use my life for helping people.
