17-Year-Old Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai And Her Inspiring Story (VIDEO)

17-year-old Malala Yousafzai became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner on Friday. Her courageous work advocating for a girls’ right to education inspired the Nobel Committee to award her with the prize. She shares the award with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian campaigner against child trafficking and labor.

Malala is a student and education activist from Pakistan. At the young age of 11-years-old, she began writing a blog for the BBC’s Urdu service. She used the blog to campaign against Taliban efforts to deny women an education.

In 2012, masked Taliban gunmen boarded her school bus and shot her twice in the head. Miraculously, Malala survived and was flown to England for care.

The assassination attempt sparked worldwide condemnation of the Taliban and rallied the world in support of Malala’s cause. She became more determined than ever to further girls’ access to education.

Shortly after recovering from her injuries, she launched the Malala Fund. The fund supports local education efforts in Pakistan, Nigeria, Syria, Jordan and Kenya. She has been addressing audiences worldwide over the past few years and has received numerous awards.

Here is Malala’s story along with her most inspiring moments on tape.
