Malala-Yousafzai.jpg

“One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen, can change the world.”

Those were the words spoken by 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai just 9 months after her attempted assassination, which left her hospitalized for a week.

Many of you likely heard Malala’s story of heroism through interviews found on the web, her book I Am Malala, or her movie, He Named Me Malala, which hit theaters October 2015.

She was riding home on a school bus on October 9th, 2012. Then, the Taliban boarded her bus and asked who Malala was–Ms. Yousafzai was already very well known throughout the are, as she had been fighting for women’s education since she was 11–and all eyes turned to her. The Taliban shot her in the head, and ran.

Luckily, Malala survived the incident. Now, she has become a powerful influence in the world, and the youngest person ever to revive the Nobel Peace Prize.

Soon after, Malala started the Malala Fund. To read more about the Malala Fund, click here.
