By writing this paper I was analyzing the rhetorical analysis the article, “Fund 12 Years of Education for Girls Around the World” written by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. In my paper, I explained how Yousafzai effectively executed her persuasive article, and how she reached enough supporters to get the victory.

The image she evokes of the challenges there are to be a female who wants better for themselves successfully introduce the argument and its seriousness.

Yousafzai ended her article by speaking on how she is blessed enough to receive a free education and hints that just because those who are presented with these privileges, we must come together and join voices to make a change for all the underprivileged girls around the world. Yousafzai beautifully stated her points, and different perspectives to help her audience understand why no matter their situation, they should want to help these girls who deserve an education.
