SRPS Role Model: Malala Yousafzai
"I know where I stand. If you stand with me, I ask you to seize every opportunity for girls' education in the next year... We should not ask children to flee their homes to also give up their dreams, and we must recognize that young refugees are future leaders on whom we all depend for peace."
Malala Yousafzai: honorary Canadian

Malala certainly qualifies as a young woman of exceptional merit!
