She was shot by a terrorist at 15 and awarded the Nobel Peace prize at 17. She continues to fight ardently for girl's education and is a writer. Born into a family of educators, this young girl from Pakistan continues to amaze and uplift.
Her life and thoughts are captured in the documentary He Named Me Malala by documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim. It captures her life as the child who survived, the teenager who giggles and crushes on Roger Federer; it also highlights the grit and resolution that this young girl has when it comes to convincing world leaders to commit to educating children. A child activist who fights for children's rights, Malala shows us that children indeed are the future.
