Malala Yousefzai

Malala Yousefzai (12 July 1997) has been a Pakistani international advocate and activist for human rights, specifically those surrounding women’s education since age 11. She is the youngest Nobel Prize laureate in history. Malala began blogging via the BBC Urdu website in 2008 as a way of covering the Taliban’s growing influence in her native Swat Valley in northern Pakistan. They decided to ask a schoolgirl to blog anonymously about her life there, and despite the dangers this presented, Malala began documenting her experiences under Taliban restrictions (mainly imposed on women) in the 7th grade. On 9 October 2012, Malala was shot by a Taliban gunman as she rode home on a bus after taking an exam in Pakistan's Swat Valley. The masked gunman demanded for Malala to identify herself, threatening to kill all the girls on the bus if she did not, and, on her being identified, shot at her. She was hit with one bullet, which went through her head, neck, and ended in her shoulder. Miraculously, she was saved after numerous surgeries and constant rehabilitation. Malala currently attends Oxford University; her story is unfinished, and her global impact has just begun.
