This past Wednesday we had "Malala Day" and celebrated the new changes in the Pakistani government as we honored the life and sacrifice of this brave girl. (Read about Malala and her remarkable story here!) Most of the girls didn't know about this story and were amazed that someone practically their age is making such a huge difference in the world.
They took turns reading her story and reading some of her quotes. We painted Chinese blossom trees in ink and acrylic to make a background for our Malala page in our journals. These trees represent hope and renewal, which we thought was fitting.
The girls are in the process of writing letters and/or poems to Malala, which they will not only add to the journals but will also upload on Malala’s blog.
