Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai is an inspiration for the whole world. Her story is not only inspiring but eye-opening for many who still don't support girls' education. Malala’s journey is path-breaking, awe-inspiring and stands as an example of sheer grit and courage.

Her heart-touching journey from the Swat Valley in Pakistan to some of the world's biggest platforms, the UN is soon be turned into a biopic, titled Gul Makai.
