Malala confronts Obama

Malala confronts Obama | Regional Geography |
Washington (CNN) -- The "Bravest Girl in the World" has stood up to President Barack Obama.
Seth Dixon's insight:

First she stands up to the Taliban risking her life.  Some skeptics thought that she was then used as a pawn; a puppet for other people.  Hearing her interview with Jon Stewart was enough to convince me that she was an authentic voice for change, even if she's been coached and others are help her script her message.  But going after Obama for drone attacks?  She really is amazing.

In the words of Jon Stewart - "Malala...I don't know where you came from, but I sure am glad you are here."

Who said young people can't solve problems!? Go Malala!!!!

Malala is a very brave young girl. To go through what she has gone through to fight for the rights of education in her country. Despite threats from terror groups she continued to fight for her and her people's rights. She is an advocate for women's rights and was shot by the Taliban. She feels that her country is so against women and their right to education because if women are educated they are more powerful. She confront Obama about all the threats and attacks innocent people's lives are taken in result. She did not care that it was an uncomfortable topic she did not care. She felt the need to address it so she did.
