Tribune’s Gamechangers 2011: Malala Yousafzai

For making headlines worldwide (the right way).


Express January 13, 2012

At just 13, Malala Yousafzai has made headlines worldwide. This courageous young girl met the restrictions of the Taliban with defiance and firm resolution. She refused to remain illiterate, and even helped her peers acquire an education. Yousafzai was also the first Pakistani child among the top five nominees from around the globe for a peace award on Universal Children’s Day.

While other girls her age have dedicated their lives to Justin Beiber, Yousafzai has taken up the courageous battle for girls’ rights in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

Quote of the year: “Education will decide our future.”
