Malala Yousafzai By: Ryan D'Amico

Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997 in Mingora Pakistan. Her father was a school master at the school Malala attended. Years later Taliban took over children's and women's rights to education.

Then one day after school, Malala was on the school bus, and the Taliban stopped the bus looking for her. When they saw her, things turned for the worst. The Taliban shot Malala because she was interfering with their plans to stop the education of women and their rights.

Miraculously Malala survived the traumatic wound and continued standing up for women's right to an education and peoples civil rights. On October 10th, 2014 Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize for her very brave actions. She then put the money away for college, and she still continues standing up for peoples rights and an right to education.

Malala is now covering her face and laughing, "There were many great moments in my life and soon to be more in my life."
