Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai - At age eleven, Malala was already advocating for the rights of women and girls. As an outspoken proponent for girls’ right to education, Malala was often in danger because of her beliefs. Despite facing many obstacles she continues her activism to this day. At age seventeen she became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for her work.


Quotes from Malala Yousafzai


“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” “I used to think I had to wait to be an adult to lead. But I've learned that even a child's voice can be heard around the world.”
