One child, one book, and one pen can change the world. Malala Yousafzai (pause) an activist for children's rights. She lived in Pakistan, a country where girls had no legal rights to a free education, yet we are taking our learning for granted. Malala was actually shot in the head because she went to school. Can you believe that?She knew she was in danger.She was being threatened by the Taliban. Yet young, brave and confident Malala risked her life for her education. Would you do the same?
As most of you may know my name is Zeba, and I'm going to tell you why your education matters. Education is a big part of your life even if you don’t think so! It helps you build up your knowledge to make great choices and opinions
Think about your future, think about what your dream job would be. If we take our education seriously and realise education matters, we can reach our long life goal and accomplish what we want .
Did you know we as part of the Manaiakalani are very fortunate? We have digital technology. We are not oppressed by anyone around us like Malala was. We do not get mocked because of our differences because we all have them and this makes us unique. So we can get along and focus on what is important. What do you love doing most? Is it sports, art, dancing? Whatever it is it all starts right here and the decisions you make about your education. Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.
.Did you know being unfocused on your education means 25% of students are most likely to drop out of school. This means 1 out of 4 students in this class does not take education seriously. Now that’s a lot at risk but this can be prevented with hard work and determination because having the two values you can get anywhere in life but not concentrating on your education and dropping out of school is like throwing a big part of your life away. How would you feel if you ended up being a rubbish truck driver? ( pause 1,2,3) I would absolutely hate that job? This also affects your social life and your family, you will not be able to support your parents How do you think your parents will feel about your future job? taking part in education also means feeling good within because you have worked and achieved your goals. You should be working on being the best you can be.
Education is one of the biggest things that matter in your life, this is something that should not be forgotten. If you are not willing then no one can help you but if you are determined then no one can stop you.
This is my persuasive speech I will be performing to the class on Wednesday. This will determine whether I will be performing a speech in front of the whole school.
