    Malala Yousafzai was born in 1997 in Mingora, Pakistan. From a young age, Malala was passionate about education and advocacy for girls’ rights. Despite facing threats and intimidation from the Taliban, who opposed girls’ education, Malala continued to attend school and speak out for her right to learn.

    In 2009, when Malala was just 11 years old, she began writing a blog for BBC Urdu under a pseudonym, detailing her experiences living under Taliban rule and advocating for girls’ education. Her courage and determination garnered international attention, and she quickly became a symbol of the fight for education equality.

    Tragically, in 2012, Malala was targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head while riding the bus home from school. Miraculously, she survived the attack and was airlifted to the United Kingdom for medical treatment. Despite the ordeal, Malala remained undeterred in her mission to promote education for all.

    After recovering from her injuries, Malala continued her activism on a global scale, co-authoring a memoir, “I Am Malala,” and establishing the Malala Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring every girl has access to 12 years of free, safe, and quality education.

    Malala’s tireless advocacy earned her numerous accolades, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, making her the youngest-ever Nobel laureate. She has since become an influential voice for girls’ education worldwide, speaking at the United Nations, meeting with world leaders, and inspiring millions with her message of hope and empowerment.

    Today, Malala is studying at the University of Oxford, where she continues to champion education as a fundamental human right and a powerful tool for positive change. Her remarkable journey from a young girl facing oppression to a global advocate for education exemplifies the transformative impact of quality education on individual lives and society as a whole.
