Malala Yousafzai

As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai defied the Taliban in Pakistan and demanded that girls be allowed to receive an education. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012 but survived. In 2014, she became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani education advocate who, at the age of 17 in 2014, became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize after surviving an assassination attempt by the Taliban. Yousafzai became an advocate for girls' education when she herself was still a child, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. In 2013, she gave a speech to the United Nations and published her first book, I Am.

From Malala story, I would say that young Girls from the world should take example from her struggle and commitment and believe in the purpose of their lives.

The former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described Malala Yousafzai as "a brave and gentle advocate of peace who, through the simple act of going to, school became a global teacher.”

In April 2017, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appointed Malala Yousafzai as a U.N. Messenger of Peace to promote girls education. The appointment is the highest honor given by the United Nations for an initial period of two years.
