She was a woman of incredible heroism and adherence to the cause of freedom. We can learn about benevolence and bravery; standing up for others even when it seems impossible to make a change and helping others no matter what the cost is, as Tubman did. We can learn about fortitude, self-disciplinerectitude and hard work. I think of her when I feel desperate against difficulties and I become assured that I can overcome those diffuculties if I don’t give up. Also she is a source of inspiration when it comes to standing up against any types of injustice.

A family member that had such a large impact on her was her brother. Her brother and herself were in school around the same time. She was humbled because her parents never gave her praise to protect her brother.

Malala is determined to receive an education, regardless of the circumstances or challenges that she must endure. In the book, Malala had received a death threat from the Taliban and her father grew fearsome. “Maybe we stop our campaigning for a while.
Mama Elena says,”If we die, no one will miss me very much, but won’t the nation mourn your loss” (Esquivel 90). In this part of the book, Mama Elena says she would rather die than let the people in. This is a strong act of motherhood because she is putting her child’s protection above everything. The shotgun is used to symbolize protection and caring about the safety of a child. So with the shotgun, the author shows that caring about a child is a characteristic of being a

[She doesn’t] want to be thought of as the “girl who was shot by the Taliban” but the “girl who fought for education.” This hints at the idea that her conflict hasn 't been resolved even though her position in it has changed, she still has to fight for education and win in order to see a true resolution, unlike J.
