    I hope they catch all culprits. Glad they’ve caught these ones. Three resons I love and respect Malala:
    1. She’s strong and dedicated to Education of Girls. Very Passionate about educating herself [Her name says it all. The meaning in a name is great. Strong and Wise]
    2. Immensely passionate about her country and it getting better. When she describes Pakistan with the hills and endless fields of grass, mango trees. You’ll fall in love with her romantic memories of her home
    3. Very articulate when speaks even in a language as foreign as English. You are guaranteed to understand precisely how she feels or what she thinks on the issue discussed.
    Courageous, Wise, Passionate,Compassionate. I hope she becomes the Doctor she always wanted to be and remains true to her strong and courageous spirit.
