Malala is a true hero and source of inspiration to many, including myself. She is a courageous and outspoken critic of the Taliban's tactics, known for her education and women's rights activism in the Swat Valley, where the Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Malala soon became the subject of an attempted assassination at the hands of a Taliban gunman because she was unafraid to speak out.
At just 14 years old, a Talib fighter boarded her bus, pointed a pistol at her head, and pulled the trigger. But she survived, made a full recovery in England, and has become and transformative figure in human rights.
Malala Yousafzai has won this year's International Children's Peace Prize at The Hague, on September 6, 2013.
If you don't know her story I hope you take your time to learn about this Big little Star,
I have also attached a documentary film about Malala Yousafzai for your easy reach.
Enjoy and don't forget to be kind and compassionate to one another.
