Lesson 7

Put yourself in Malala’s shoes and write a diary entry explaining her feelings about the state of the world.


Use the extract from the text below to remind you. 


Think about how she is feeling?


What might happen?  


It’s a diary entry so think about your tense to.

Dear diary,

Today I feel.............

One by one, girls stopped coming to school.


“Aba, where are all the students?”


“They don’t feel safe here any more, jani.”


How could a few men stop all the girls in our valley from going to school? If more people knew what was happening to us, I thought, they might help.


Wishing wasn’t enough. Someone needed to speak out.


Why not me?
