Emory Report | Oct. 19, 2016
The Emory Integrity Project hosted a lecture by Shiza Shahid, social entrepreneur and co-founder of the Malala Fund, on Oct. 18 in Glenn Memorial Auditorium.
Shahid is a mentor and close friend of Malala Yousafzai, a young woman shot by the Taliban at age 15 for speaking out for her right to education. The Malala Fund's goal is to enable girls around the world to complete 12 years of safe, quality education.
"I Am Malala," Yousafzai's memoir, is being read by first-year students as the Emory Integrity Project explores the theme of "Standing" for its inaugural year.
Shahid's lecture was presented in partnership with the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
