There are No Superheroes, Just Us: An Evening with Shiza Shahid

Malala Fund co-founder Shiza Shahid, who has been at the forefront of fighting for female access to education worldwide and who helped care for Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai after the Nobel Laureate was shot, will be the guest speaker at the California State University San Marcos Arts & Lectures series’ signature event set for November 16—There are No Superheroes, Just Us: My Journey with Malala.

“This will be an extraordinary evening,” said CSUSM Library Dean Jennifer Fabbi. “And it’s open to the entire community.”

Shahid was recently named one of TIME magazine's 30 Under 30 World Changers and Forbes' 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs. Today she and Malala Yousafzai advocate for the millions of girls worldwide denied a formal education because of social, economic, legal and political factors.
