Malala will bring to the lecture all the experience she gained as one of the 
primary activists for the education of women in the world and great 
spokesperson for the defense of human rights, to discuss with the students the 
importance of education for professional and personal development.

"Education is something that allows a woman to be in a place where she can have 
access to so many opportunities which otherwise she would not get. When you are 
educated, you´re in a much better position to know about your rights, to know 
about the fact you can own for yourself, you can decide to marry later, along 
with that allows you to have opportunity to be financially independent," the 
activist says.

For Alex Augusto, CEO of UOL EdTech, the lecture is an opportunity for 
learning. "We are excited to offer this exchange of knowledge from one of the 
most important young people today through an innovative and distinctive 
platform. We believe that technology can bring people together and accelerate 
learning. Our goal as an edtech is to lead innovation in education and promote 
a transformative learning experience, both in Brazil and Latin America, as well 
as in the rest of the world."

UOL EdTech develops entirely Brazilian technology and supports students at all 
stages of learning, from the youngest student in elementary and high school to 
the professional who seeks to continue their education in an online 
specialization or even in courses offered in the work environment.
