1. You are to imagine you have been the chauffeur to Malala Yousafzai since she was shot by the Taliban in 2012.

Here is some information about Malala:

Malala Yousafzai (Malālah Yūsafzay: Urdu: ملالہ یوسفزئی‎‎; Pashto: ملاله یوسفزۍ‎ [məˈlaːlə jusəf ˈzəj]; born 12 July 1997) is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Her advocacy has grown into an international movement.

Yousafzai was born in Mingora, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Her family came to run a chain of schools in the region. Considering Jinnah and Benazir Bhutto as her role models, she was particularly inspired by her father's thoughts and humanitarian work. In early 2009, when she was 11–12, she wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC Urdu detailing her life during the Taliban occupation of Swat. The following summer, journalist Adam B. Ellick made a New York Times documentary about her life as the Pakistani military intervened in the region. She rose in prominence, giving interviews in print and on television, and she was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize by activist Desmond Tutu.

Yousafzai was injured on 9 October 2012 by a Taliban gunman when he attempted to murder her.

3. You are to write an illuminating account of Malala, her views and ideas that you have gained over driving her for several years.  You are to remain discreet and trustworthy in your diary entries - so you will not reveal any personal information or thoughts about Malala or her family but use the information gained from Malala as a reflection on your own life.
