De 20 mooiste quotes van Malala Yousafzai

In de Bedrock-serie ‘De mooiste quotes van…’ delen we regelmatig inspirerende citaten van wijze mensen. En als we het daarover hebben, kunnen we natuurlijk niet om ‘s werelds jongste winnares van de Nobelprijs voor de Vrede ooit heen. Je kent ongetwijfeld Malala Yousafzai uit Pakistan, de inmiddels 21-jarige kinderrechtenactiviste die al zo’n tien jaar strijdt voor onderwijs voor meisjes.

Ze liet zich daarin zelfs niet tegenhouden door een op haar gerichte aanslag die ze overleefde. Door TIME werd Malala al eens uitgeroepen tot één van de 100 invloedrijkste personen ter wereld, maar maar wij willen haar vooral uitroepen tot één van de moedigste en meest inspirerende mensen.
