Google marked International Women’s Day on Tuesday with an interesting video featuring women from around the globe, including Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai.

Malala and activist Muzoon Almellehan, dubbed the Syrian Malala, appear together in the video, saying “One day, we will see every girl in school”.

“Over the years, Doodles have commemorated the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. It’s always an honour to pay tribute to women who have changed the course of history, sometimes in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles,” Google said.

“But for this year’s International Women’s Day, we wanted to celebrate the Doodle-worthy women of the future,” it added.

In the video, Google asked women from 13 countries to voice their aspiration by completing the sentence, “One day I will…”.

“One day we will play in the major league,” one young girl said. While another, a woman from India, said she wanted to open up her own restaurant.

“I’ll open my own lab,” another said.

“Even women who are already accomplished aren’t done dreaming. Jane Goodall shared her hope to one day discuss the environment with the Pope, while Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan continue to work fearlessly toward a future where every girl can go to school,” Google said.

Google invites you to share your aspiration with #OneDayIWill and “get one step closer to where you’re going. You never know, you could be the subject of a doodle yourself someday…”
