Malala Yousafzai was a little girl born in Pakistan on July 12, 1997 who believed that "One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world." But, she faced, and is still facing, a death threat from the Taliban, who appose her thoughts of the girls' rights to education. On October 9, 2012, when Malala was 15 years old, a masked gunman shot her while she was about to head home from school on the bus, where her friends were present. The bullet hit her on the left side of her head, which then went down her neck, and two other girls were also injured. Although she is fine now, Malala was left in a critical condition as a result of the gunshot, and despite the critical condition she had to go through and the death threats continuing from the Taliban, she remains loyal to her work and thought for girls to receive education.
