On January 21st, 2017 thousands of people across the world marched for women's equality. While I didn't attend a march, I did wear my Malala X Toms scarf to support girls' education. Like any responsible millennial, I took to twitter and shared a photo of myself in said scarf.
A few days later Ziauddin Yousafzai, Malala's dad, retweeted me.
IT. WAS. AWESOME.

PS - how awesome are these quotes by Malala? She is wise beyond her years.
"I speak not for myself but for those without voice... those who have fought for their rights... their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated."
"Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world."
"Once I had asked God for one or two extra inches in height, but instead, he made me as tall as the sky, so high that I could not measure myself... By giving me this height to reach people, he has also given me great responsibilities."
