Malala Yousafzai is a human rights advocate fighting for girls’ education. After speaking out against the oppressive Taliban regime in Pakistan, Malala became a target and in
2012, a masked gunman boarded her school bus and shot Malala in the head, neck and shoulder. She somehow survived and in 2014, at just 17, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, becoming the youngest ever recipient. In the past few years, the now 21-year-old has opened a school for Syrian refugee girls and travels the world advocating for vulnerable girls, all while attending uni.
