WEEK 1:WARRIOR
You have overcome 100% of your worst days, and you’re still standing. The strength to try harder, try again, will push you through any problem in life. You’ve got warrior blood, so never question it.

Our picks for this week include:

MALALA YOUSAFZAI

The youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner’s name is a household one. She was attacked by the Taliban for her activism and views on female education and humanitarian rights, and now is studying at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

Extremists have shown what frightens them most: a girl with a book.

TURIA PITT

Australian mining engineer, motivational speaker and author Turia triumphed in adversity after suffering burns to 65% of her body. She’s known for, and has inspired many with her pure grit, indomitable spirit and passion for humanitarian work.

I’m a strong believer that failure doesn’t define who you are, it simply helps you define a better path forward.

JOAN OF ARC

Nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans", the heroine of France during the the Hundred Years' War was burned at the stake for charges that were posthumously debunked.She was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint more than 500 years later.

...to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.
