There's a new documentary coming out about Malala Yousafzai, the girl who survived being shot in the face by a member of the Taliban, and the trailer is going to give you a lot of feels.

He Named Me Malala is an upcoming documentary about incredible 17-year-old peace activist Malala Yousafzai, who has repeatedly had the courage to stand up and fight for women's rights, even when it put her life in danger. But the thing I found so emotional about this trailer isn't the amazing things she's done — it's that the film shows how, despite these amazing things, Malala is still just a teenage girl. She has little brothers and a crush on Roger Federer, and she covers her mouth when she laughs in a way that's really similar to how I self-consciously covered my mouth when I was in high school. That contrast makes the things she's done so much more incredible.
