It’s no secret that Malala Yousafzai has managed to make more than just a name for herself. From educating and empowering women to becoming the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, she seems to have achieved milestone after milestone.

With that comes a lot of recognition. The activist is known all around the world and even has a biopic titled Gul Makai being made on her. Other than that, she’s had numerous books to her name. And unsurprisingly, the author has garnered countless fans.

“Currently reading We Are Displaced,” she posted. “The stories in this book, of Malala and all the other incredible girls are moving and inspiring in equal measure. They will inspire so many others to dream, reach higher and believe in themselves.”
