April 13, 2017


The famed rights advocate wowed Parliament with an unprecedented address

Nobel laureate and rights advocate for human rights Malala Yousafzai addressed Parliament recently, urging her Canadian supporters to support the education of girls worldwide.

 

"Your motto and your stand, welcome to Canada, is more than a headline or a hashtag," she said. "It is the spirit of humanity that every single one of us would yearn for if our family was in crisis. I pray that you continue to open your homes, your hearts, to the world's most defenceless children and families and I hope your neighbours will follow your example."

 

She also called on young people in Canada to become become active in bettering their society:

 

"I used to think I had to wait to be an adult to lead. But I've learned that even a child's voice can be heard around the world," she said.

 

During her time in Canada, Ms. Yousafzai received honourary Canadian citizenship. She was also the youngest-ever person to address Parliament.
