    9. 9. I believe I achieved my learning objective which is to explain in a power point about Malala’s life, her achievements, and about the children in the world who do not have opportunity for an education. I found this information by reading her book and looking at websites. I learned that despite how daunting a cause might be, even children can make a difference.
