It's the middle of July, summer heat is on and all we wanna do is head to the beach. But what if you lived in a part of the world where your life is at risk because you're a girl and you will be shot at if you speak your mind or went to school so you can pursue your dreams. That is what happened to Malala Yousafzai.
Malala is a courageous young women advocating for universal education and girls’ rights. She was targeted for her beliefs and a masked gunman boarded her school bus, called out to her by name and shot her. He not only failed in killing her, but also her cause. On July 14th is Malala Day, a day that stands as a reminder that millions of girls around the world are still fighting for basic rights including an education.
As a minority female myself how amazing it is to live in a part of the world where I can take for granted that I received an education, can freely use my voice, and to live a life that I always imagined by building my own company based on the beliefs that I dictate to help my clients launch their own dreams as well.
Please help me spread the love and do something meaningful to help millions of women and girls around the world who are denied an education and the opportunity to chase their dreams. If Malala's story and countless other stories like this moves your heart, please do your part to help celebrate brave girls who will show the world that they are #StrongerThan Fear.

In the words of Malala: “Malala Day is not my day. It is the day of every girl and every boy. It is a day when we come together to raise our voices, so that those without a voice can be heard.”
