Transcript of Malala Yousafzai
For several months, Malala’s school and hundreds of others in the district of Swat were closed. Malala spoke publicly about her desire to go to school. She gave a speech in September 2008 and the title of her talk was, "How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?"
When the Pakistani government regained control, Malala was able to return to class. But she continued to speak out about girls’ right to education. On October 9, 2012, the Taliban tried to silence her. A gunman boarded her school bus and shot her on the left side of her forehead. But Malala survived, showing great courage and optimism during her long recovery. During this time, Malala became a symbol of the struggle for girls’ rights all over the world.
Her activism resulted in a nomination for the International Children's Peace Prize in 2011. That same year, she was awarded Pakistan's National Youth Peace Prize. In 2014, She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and she won it, becoming the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
