You’ve undoubtedly heard of Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani girl who spent the last five years advocating for human rights and specifically the rights of women in Pakistan. In 2012, Yousafzai survived an assassination attempt when she was shot three times at point blank range by the Taliban, who didn’t agree with the message she was sending to Muslim women around the world.
After her release from the hospital, Yousafzai continued to spread her message, albeit in a different country (death threats kept her out of Pakistan). Needless to say, she is truly one of the more remarkable women of our time.
Today, Yousafzai, became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Her acceptance speech will leave you in awe.
