For many years this book was laying in my book shelf waiting to be read. Finally, I began to read the first pages and immersed myself. Getting to know more about her biography attracted me because Malala and I share the same birthday. But there is more: I admire her for strength and courage as a Pakistani (immigrant), a woman and a human being.
Latvia has gifted me new insights and perspectives.
“Liels paldies Latvijai!”
And by donating this book I hope I can contribute some of my thoughts to Latvia and its people. Latvia is a country eager to make tradition survive in modern society. For me, Malala represents the balance between tradition and change!
