I'm just in awe of this girl each time I see her on the news. How do some people become so 'great'? She's definitely an inspirational girl.

Extraordinary isn't she? I was just listening to her on the regional news and marvelling.

And there are more little glimmers of brilliance - not only this Pakistani girl, but wow! at her dad for bucking the trend and supporting her:
Maria Toorpakai
I don't think I can ever fully understand the magnitude of their determination, for want of a better phrase!

They are an inspiration in the face of male dominated evil. There was a damn good reason why Malala survived being shot in the head by those Taliban dogs, and I'm sure many many young girls will believe in themselves and the power of speech and freedom through her.

So, when someone asks why I don't like Katie Price, or some other similar "sleb", I just want to shout "look over here! This is why! THESE are the girls / women who should be filling our newspapers!"
I'm humbled by them.
