As we were sitting on the sofa some night ago, watching David Letterman’s show on Netflix, we found ourselves more than surprised to stumble upon something very familiar to us…
In the 3rd episode of his new talk, “My next guest needs no introduction”, the iconic showman hosted an important feminine figure, the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner, Pakistani activist, Malala Yousafzai.
While very much immersed into her life stories of advocacy and courage, deeply fascinated by her remarkable character and breathtaking words, suddenly, we couldn’t help but getting distracted by something we know very well: a familiar silhouette emerging from the background…
The interview was set both in New York and Oxford, where Malala, 20, reads Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. The Oxford University, one of the most iconic and renowned educational institutions in Europe, stands among those virtuous organizations who chose to co-brand with 24Bottles to create a line of custom water bottles in order to encourage more people to ditch plastic bottles and go reusable.
We were more than happy to appear between such giants in their own field.
Since a young age, Malala Yousafzai advocated for human rights, especially gender equality and education of children and women. She started being an activist in her native valley in Pakistan, fighting against the restrictions Taliban groups imposed on women and children. Nowadays, her advocacy has become an international movement with the mission to empower young girls and make education accessible for all.
On the other hand, Letterman looked quite happy to be back on stage. He might have missed doing what he does best. His last apparition was in 2015, when he hosted his 6028th episode of “Late Night” and then “Late Show with David Letterman”, after 33 years of career as an entertainer. He declared with his typical wit: “I can’t tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house”.
Well, enjoy the show!
