“I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading, and sleep,” Malala, 22, further added.
Malala is the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. At 15, she survived a Taliban attack. But instead of getting scared, she was strengthened by the attack
In October 2012, Malala was shot in the head by a bullet, but survived and eventually recovered. After the Taliban attack, she became a fierce advocate for girls’ education. She is also the co-founder of the Malala Fund, a non-profit organisation for the same cause.
In 2018, Malala received an award from Harvard University for her ground-breaking work promoting girls’ education. On various occasions, she has raised concern around issues that are very alike in India and Pakistan, explaining why the two countries should together fight for social justice. “When we talk about the future of India and future of Pakistan, then we have to invest in our girls because they are the future. How can we make our future better and brighter when we ignore these millions of girls by not giving them education? When we educate girls, we are not just educating them individually but we are also empowering them and we are giving them opportunity to earn for themselves,” she had said speaking at the World Economic Forum, last year.
Malala was 15-year-old when she survived the attack on her life. The Pakistani activist went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.
