Malala Yousafzai - as of October 2014 the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize - is an inspiration. A young girl living in Pakistan, she was shot by the Taliban simply because she wanted to go to school. Since that moment, she has captured the attention of the world with her bravery, becoming a voice for the rights of girls everywhere. In the fall of 2014 she became the youngest person ever to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This is a letter to Malala, illustrated with beautiful photographs from Plan International. Girls from around the world express their sympathy, sisterhood, and admiration for her. Many of them know first-hand the barriers that stand in the way of girls going to school – barriers like poverty, discrimination, and violence. In Malala these girls recognize a leader, a champion, and a friend.
