We know Malala won the Nobel Peace Prize. Do you know what she's done to girls around the world?

Unless you've lived under a rock, you've probably heard of Malala Yousafzai.

She's the teenage girl from Pakistan who's made quite a name for herself as an advocate for girls' and women's education.


In October 2012, the Taliban shot her because she fought for women's education.

Malala was 15 at the time. She lived in the Swat Valley of Pakistan, where the Taliban slowly began to take control when she was a young girl. One of the key philosophies of the Taliban was that women should not have an education.

Despite the risk, Malala blogged anonymously for BBC about her life as a girl under the Taliban. Soon enough, her real identity was revealed, and she began receiving threats from the Taliban.

By the stroke of a miracle, she did not die.

Malala got shot on the left side of her head and had to undergo many facial surgeries. Fortunately, she eventually went back to living as normal, and studying in the U.K., where she continued advocating against the Taliban and for women's education.

Two years later, in 2014, Malala won a Nobel Peace Prize.

Take that, Taliban.

And now, Malala's brilliance is inspiring girls around the world.

You should watch to see how. Seriously.

The answer to that is a bit tricky. The good news is that there's a big chance that Quasimodo-looking creature that stares back at you in your selfies isn't an accurate depiction of the real you. But your mirror isn't completely truthful either.

Below, a scientific breakdown that might explain those embarrassing tagged photos of you:
