The inspiring story of Malala Yousafzai, the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Even as a young girl in Pakistan, Malala spoke up about the importance of girls' education, via speeches and a blog. Since the Taliban regime was intent on denying girls an education and silencing anyone who disagreed with their laws, this was very dangerous. Malala was shot, but she survived the attack and was not silenced. In fact, she spoke at the UN on her 16th birthday, just nine months after she was shot, and her resolve has only magnified her voice, delivering her message of human rights to millions of people.
