Jianan Liu – Malala Fund

We’re very proud to announce that Jianan Liu was selected by the Malala Fund to fully illustrate the 2020 edition of ‘Assembly’ magazine.

Co-founded by student and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, Malala Fund works to create a world where all girls can learn and lead.

In this mini magazine, girls in 19 countries talk about the issues and topics that matter to them — from menstruation myths and advocacy tips to dream jobs and learning during COVID-19.
