Malala Yousafzai near death to nobel peace prize

Malala was born on July 12th 1997. As a child she was an advocate for girls’ education. A while after that the Taliban issued a death threat opposing her if she was ever to stand up against them again. On October 9th 2012 Malala was shot on a bus coming back from school. After, she was rushed to a military hospital and to receive further care she was sent to a hospital in England. Now Malala has gotten tons of peace prizes all around the world.

Malala was shot because of the blog she started in 2009 on BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation.) about the Taliban and how they were taking away the rights of girls and woman to go to school in Pakistan and Siberia. Her Activism resulted in nomination for the international children’s peace prize in 2011. That same year she was awarded Pakistan’s national youth peace prize. Shortly after that the Taliban issued a death threat against her because of her activism. You can visit my remake here:

On October 9th, 2012 Malala was shot on a bus coming home school. A masked gunman boarded the bus and he asked for Malala, her friends looked at her and it was now clear to see who she was. The gunman took three steps and shot her in the left side of the head. She was after rushed to a military hospital, and to receive further care she was transported to a hospital in Birmingham, England.

Malala was born on July 12th, 1997 in Mingora, Pakistan. Her hometown was a big tourist spot in the summer, as they held tons of festivals. Then it all started to change once the Taliban started to take over. Malala attended a school that her father funded until girls’ schools started getting attacked. That’s what got her motivated to start her blog.

The aftermath of the situation was pretty bad and good at the same time. The bad part being Malala having to get a portion of the left side of her skull removed to heal the damage that it did to her brain. The good news was that it raised awareness for the right for girls to go to school. It also won Malala lots of different peace prizes and the biggest Nobel peace prize.
