MALALA DAY CELEBRATED BY KBDAV-7 LEARNERS
Chandigarh (Aditi) It is not the size of a girl in the fight, but the size of the fight in a girl”, and “there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise”, were two of the many quotes that defined woman power, today in a G-meet where the Principal of KBDAV Senior Secondary Public School, Sector. 7 – B, Chandigarh Mrs. Pooja Prakash, the teachers of the Senior Secondary Wing and the learners of XI had gathered to observe Malala Day and to celebrate the power of womanhood.
As many as seven learners spoke their minds on the heights that a woman has achieved with leaders like Malala Yousafzai at the helm. Malala who rose from ashes like a phoenix is a known name across the world, advocating the right to education of the girl child. “Sometimes you just have to die a little inside in order to be reborn, and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.”
Ananaya Thakur, Manya Bansal and Rishi Nayyar praised Malala for setting a benchmark for the girls of the world to follow. Age does not matter if you want the world to sit up and notice you, said these speakers, quoting Malala’s great achievements. Whereas speakers like Arpita Nara, Palak, Nishtha Kalia and Anushka Mehal recited poems and celebrated women empowerment in their own unique styles. Finally, Principal Mrs. Pooja Prakash appreciated the efforts of the learners for recognising Malala Yousafzai and knowing more about her life, replete with struggles. She encouraged the children to never lose sight of their goals, and create a dent with their arduous efforts.
