Malala Yousazfai, born in 1997, is a young woman from Pakistan, who has been a long-term advocate for females to receive the education they need, not just ignoring them!
Born in Mingora, she started her own blog at the age of 11, under a pseudonym. She discussed about what life is under the Taliban occupation of Swat, including the exclusion of women from attending school, excluding them from the entire society.
The world, gave her attention just after she was focused on a documentary of new York Times. This documentary, was about the International Children’s peace Prize by the activist Desmon Tutu. On October 9th 2012, when Malala was 15, a masked gunman shotted her in the head. She survived and actually lives in the UK.
At 17, Malala was a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
In 2018, after six years she returned to Pakistan for a four day visit. She told an audience in the Prime Minister’s office of how she had longed to be back in the capital Islamabad, even as she promoted girls’ education around the whole world.
“I was always dreaming for the past five years, that I can come to my country, whenever I was travelling abroad”, she said. Now Malala postes on Twitter, a famous social web, where famous people send notices, opinions and more. In 2020 she graduated in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University.
