From similarities to differences – Comparing Malala Yousafzai to Jesus Christ
What does one of the most influential religious people throughout centuries have to do with the youngest Nobel peace prize winner? This may seem like I picked these two people as a random choice, yet it was well deliberated.
They both had and still has a huge impact on a lot of people, in their own very different ways. Malala Yousafzai, a 22-year-old Pakistani girl. She’s a working activist for female education.
Malala was born in Mingora, Pakistan on June 12, 1997. With the passion her father Ziauddin Yousafzai had, and the supportive he always gave her. Malala grew up to become the youngest Nobel peace prize winner in history.
At only the age of 17 years old. When she started publicly speaking about women’s rights she was quickly targeted by the Taliban. And on October 12th, 2012 she was shot on the left side of her head that sent her in a 10-day long coma.
After months of surgeries and rehabilitation, Malala and her family moved from Pakistan to the UK. Still, to this day Malala never quit fighting for what she stood up for.
Not once did she tolerate anyone taking her powerful voice apart from her. Becoming visible to a lot of people, that is how she became the role model she is today.
Standing up for herself, never abdicating from her mission, avail oneself of her voice, lending a helping hand to people. Just like Jesus did in his time.
