I am Malala. I come from a lineage of women who fought stereotypes, racism and bigotry in their adapted homes in North America. I continue to fight it here in Canada. I am Malala because I understand what it is like to have others want to silence you, your beliefs and your actions. Each and every single Muslim woman who has been a victim of racism, prejudice and bigotry is Malala.

Today, his long march was recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize, which he will share with the equally unwavering Malala Yousafzai. She will get much of the world's attention, for good reason. But Kailash shouldn't be overshadowed. And no one should forget Iqbal Masih, the Pakistani boy who inspired them both, escaping from child labour at age 10, speaking out intentionally and than being shot dead, at age 12, in his hometown of Muridke.

We did it! After tens of thousands of Canadians and even more people from around the world signed my petition on Change.org, we got every single party leader to get behind the campaign to unanimously nominate Malala Yousufzai for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. I had never imagined that not one, but all of our federal parties and leaders would end up supporting the campaign to support a girl halfway around the world.
