Malala Yousafzai was born on 12th July 1997 in Mingora, Pakistan. She is an activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize winner. Malala grew up in reverence of her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai who is an activist and a retired teacher who believes education is the most powerful weapon.
Malala was only ten years old when she wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC Urdu explaining her life during the Taliban occupation in Swat. She rose in eminence and was interviewed by television and print media. On 9th October 2012, after taking an exam, while coming back she along with two girls were shot by a Taliban gunman. She was hit in the head with a bullet and was in critical condition at Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology, she was then transferred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital IN Birmingham, UK.
Even a bullet shot could not stop her to pursue her dreams. She raised her voice for female education and also co-founded The Malala Fund, a non-profit organization with Shiza Shahid and also wrote an autobiography "I'Am Malala"
Following Malala Yousafzai taught me the power of education, courage, and raising voice for your rights. Education is a process that stays until death. It is the power to change lives.“There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a third power stronger than both, that of women"- Malala Yousafzai.
