Malala Yousafzai is an activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. In her hometown of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, a terrorist group had banned young women from attending school. Malala, following the work of her father, campaigned against this by bravely speaking to international reporters and writing about the issues facing young women in the country. Many young people stopped attending school out of fear that they would be attacked; Malala continued to go in the hope of inspiring others to access the education that they deserved. In 2012, while on a bus home from school, Malala was shot by a gunman in response to her campaign. She was brought to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where she recovered from her serious injuries, and found the courage and determination to continue with her campaign, forming an international petition and support from world leaders to reopen schools in her home country and to continue to improve the lives of young women.
