Have you ever heard the famous speech I Have A Dream delivered by Martin Luther KingHave you ever been inspired by the speech from Mahatma Gandhi ? These speeches are both so exciting, stirring and exalting that we are all deeply motivated. But, the speech I am going to talk about today is quite different from these tub thumpings. It is plain and simple, but it is this girl with strong accent that delivers an unforgettable speech and makes everyone stand up and burst into stormy applause. Now let’s go into the speech of this girl from Malawi.

Interestingly, the speech begins with a poem written by a 13 year-old girl. At first, the audience burst out laughing when they heard the name of the poem “I will marry when I want” .This arouses the curiosity of the audience. “Why should I worry about the time when I should get married? Why is this 13 year-old girl so anxious about her marriage at such a young age?”This will successfully draw us into the following part of her speech.

Then, the speaker tells a story about her sister, who got pregnant when she was 11 years old and became a mother of 3 children when she was only 16. That is very astonishing for the audience like us who has never imagined lives with the anguish of child marriage.
