Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist. She was born in 1997 in Mingora, Pakistan. In 2008, the Taliban invaded Yousafzai’s hometown. They closed and destroyed many of the girls’ schools in the area. This motivated Yousafzai to speak up about girls’ rights to education. When she was only 11 years old, she started publishing her opinions under a pseudonym. Her activism drew a lot of attention, and her real name was soon revealed to the public. In 2012, Yousafzai was shot by a Taliban gunman while riding the bus. She recovered from the attack at a hospital in Birmingham, England, and began to go to school there. In 2014, Yousafzai became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
