December 10, 2014 - Malala Yousafzai becomes the youngest and first Pakistani person to win the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts in promoting education, particularly for young girls. Yousafzai's worldwide activism started with being shot in the face for attending school, so ever since then she has fought to make sure that never happens to any child ever again.
I tell my story not because it is unique, but because it is not. It is the story of many girls today. I tell their stories to I have brought with me some of my sisters from Pakistan, from Nigeria and from Syria, who shared this story. My brave sisters, Charles Yankee not who are also shot that day on our school bus. But they have not stopped learning and my brave sister find out some raw who went through severe abuse and extreme violence. Even her brother was killed, but she did not succumb. Also, my sister's here, whom I have met during my Malala Fund campaign. Yeah, my 16 year old courageous sister Monsoon from Syria, who now lives in Jordan as a refugee. And she goes from 10 to 10, encouraging girls and boys to learn. And my sister Amina, from the north of Nigeria, where Boko Haram threatens and stops girls and even kidnaps girls just for wanting to go to school. Do I appear as one girl? The idea is one gun, one person with 5 ft two inches tall. If you include my high heels Mhm, it means I'm 5 ft only. I am not a lone voice and not a lone voice. I am many. I am Malala. But I'm also Shazia. I'm kinda I'm kind of Sandro. I'm most soon I am Amina. I am those 66 million girls who are deprived of education. And today I'm not raising my voice. It is the voice of those 66 million girls. Sometimes people like to ask me Why should girls go to school? Why is it important for them? But I think the more important question is why shouldn't they? Why shouldn't they have this right to go to school? Dear brothers and sisters, Today, in half of the world, we see rapid progress and development. However, there are many countries where millions still suffer from the very old problems of war, poverty and injustice. We still see conflicts in which innocent people lose their lives and Children become orphans. We see many people becoming refugees in Syria. Gaza ended up in Afghanistan. We see families being killed in suicide attacks and bomb blasts. Many Children in Africa do not have access to education because of poverty. And as I said, we still see We still see girls who have no freedom to go to school in the north of Nigeria, many Children in countries like Pakistan and India, His philosophy RD mentioned. Many Children, especially in India and Pakistan, are the pride of their right to education because of social tables. Or they have been forced into child marriage or into child labor. One of my very good school friends, the same age as me, who has always been bold and confident girl dreamed of becoming a doctor, but her dream remained a dream. At the age of 12, she was forced to get married, and then soon she had a son. She had a child when she herself was a child, only 14. I know that she could have been a very good doctor, but she couldn't because she was a girl. Her story is why I dedicate the Nobel Peace Prize money into the Malala Fund to help give girls quality education everywhere anywhere in the world and to raise their voices. The first place this funding will go to is where my heart is to build schools in Pakistan, especially in my home of Sod and Shangla
