She's Known As Malala, But When She Revealed Her Other Names, I Got Teary
Malala Yousafzai was 15 when she was shot in the head on a school bus by a terrorist. Now, at 17, she's the youngest person to accept the Nobel Peace Prize.
Her speech is pretty brilliant and still gives me chills. Check it out here:
So just to recap...
At the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance ceremony, Malala admitted:
The Pakistani activist, who still fights for women's access to education, humbly accepted the honor. She also said the award wasn't really for her.
While she's known worldwide as "Malala," she has many other names.
But no matter what people call her, she's still crystal-clear on her purpose.
You can support Malala's vision to educate women worldwide by following the Malala Fund on Facebook and Twitter.
