Malala Yousafzai

JK Rowling

“I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin.’ Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons.” – JK Rowling, author

Charlene Mercieca

“Life has a 'funny' way of teaching us lessons – the best thing you can do is accept the challenge you’ve been given and to face it with an open mind instead of anger and resistance. Use it as an opportunity to look deeper inside yourself and to discover who you really are.” Charlene Mercieca, owner of Soap Café and kick-ass survivor
