Malala Yousafzai was born in 12 July of 1997. she is a Pakistani Activist for Female Education and the youngest Nobel Proie laureate. Her family have schools in Pakistan, where the Taliban prohibited the youngers girls to frequent. Due that, in 2009 she decides to create a Blog to BBC, where she described her daily life under a pseudonym.

In the next summer, the newspaper New York Times published a documentary about the Blog and Malala started to give interviews to TVs and Magazines and she also was nominated to win a International Prize by the Desmond Tutu – another activist.

And suddenly the worst happened… On the afternoon of October 9, 2012, Malala took the school bus to go home and a gunman called her by her name and when she looked after him, she was shot 3 times. One bullet hit her forehead, another her face and another her shoulder. She stayed unconscious and in critical condition and was sent to England for intense rehabilitation. Fortunately she recovered from the accident and the magazine Times named her as one of the “The 100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2013 and she was the cover.

  • From Wikipedia:

The assassination attempt sparked a national and international outpouring of support for Yousafzai. Deutsche Welle wrote in January 2013 that Yousafzai may have become "the most famous teenager in the world". United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown launched a UN petition in Yousafzai's name, demanding that all children worldwide be in school by the end of 2015; it helped lead to the ratification of Pakistan's first Right to Education Bill.

She was the winner of Pakistan's first National Youth Peace Prize, and the recipient of the 2013 Sakharov Prize. In July that year, she spoke at the headquarters of the United Nations to call for worldwide access to education, and in October the Government of Canada announced its intention that its parliament confer Honorary Canadian citizenship upon Yousafzai. In February 2014, she was nominated for the World Children's Prize in Sweden. Even though she was fighting for women's rights as well as children's rights, she did not describe herself as feminist when asked on Forbes Under 30 Summit in 2014. In 2015, however, Yousafzai told Emma Watson she decided to call herself a feminist after hearing Watson's speech at the UN launching the HeForShe campaign. In May 2014, Yousafzai was granted an honorary doctorate by the University of King's College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Later in 2014, Yousafzai was announced as the co-recipient of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, along with Kailash Satyarthi, for her struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education. Aged 17 at the time, Yousafzai became the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. She was the subject of Oscar-shortlisted 2015 documentary He Named Me Malala.
