Harvard honours activist Malala
Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai has been honoured by Harvard University for promoting girls’ education. Ms Yousafzai received the 2018 Gleitsman Award from Harvard’s Kennedy School. Ms Yousafzai became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 when she was recognised for supporting schooling for all children.
As a teenager in Pakistan, she survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban.
She later founded the nonprofit Malala Fund to support her work.
Now 21, Ms Yousafzai is a student at Oxford University.
