Malala is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Her advocacy has grown into an international movement, and according to Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, she has become “the most prominent citizen” of the country.
On 9 October 2012, Malala was reportedly shot at by a Taliban gunman as she rode home on a bus after taking an exam in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. She was 15 then. The brave teenage braved the bullet and after undergoing surgeries stood back on her feet fighting for the cause of women and child education.
