When I went to Nigeria this Malala Day, to speak up for the rights of girls everywhere, you were there raising your voice right beside me.
On Malala Day, you and 150,000 others around the world signed onto my statement to show you are with us, and that together we are #StrongerThan fear, oppression and violence.
Thanks to you, when I met some of the kidnapped Nigerian girls and their parents, I was able to say they had your support. When I met the Nigerian President I was able to say I spoke for many more. When I rose to speak before the world's media I knew you stood behind me. I knew that together we were #StrongerThan those who would deny girls an education.
For the first time, with the eyes of the world watching, the Nigerian President agreed to meet for the with those parents and escaped girls — a meeting that happened last week. You helped that meeting happen.
But this is just the beginning. We must keep the #BringBackOurGirls campaign alive and stronger than ever in solidarity with those schoolgirls who remain kidnapped. We must not rest until all our sisters and brothers enjoy the right to go to school.
