Malala Yousafzai is a passionate female education activist, who rose to fame after she survived being shot in the head by the Taliban. Courageously advocating her right to education, Malala was shot on the 9th of October 2012 and left fighting for her life.

Having lived to share her story, Malala Yousafzai is now the co-founder of the Malala Fund and a female motivational speaker who empowers other women to stand up for their rights.

The Pakistani Taliban have long limited girls education, having destroyed countless schools and shut schools specifically for girls. On the 9th of October 2012, Malala was on her way home after sitting an exam when a Taliban gunman shot her and another girl due to their activism for female education.

After initial treatment at the Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology, Malala was transferred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where she made a recovery and rose to international fame for her passions for equality.

Since recovery, Malala was able to attend school at the Edgbaston High School and completed studies in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford. Malala Yousafzai has also become the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize– accepting the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for struggles against suppression and the rights for children’s education.
