Shazia Ramzan and Kainat Riaz
Shazia Ramzan and Kainat Riaz were on the same bus as Malala Yousafzai when she was shot by the Taliban in Pakistan in October 2012. Shazia and Kainat were also injured when Malala was targeted. The two girls were unable to return safely to education in Pakistan. When UWC Atlantic College, an international boarding school based in Cardiff, offered Malala a full scholarship, she asked that her two friends be given the scholarship instead. This portrait was taken at the College. Both girls continue to speak up about the importance of girls' education to change attitudes and support the ambitions and voices of girls going through the same difficulties.
