Singer-songwriter Justin Bieber, 20, who is known of late for his wild child behavior, surprised many on Thursday when he posted a picture of himself FaceTiming with education activist Malala Yousafzai.
Throwing his weight behind Malala, Justin -- who is already an avid philanthropist supporting various charities and causes around the world -- expressed how he wants to meet Malala in person to discuss how he can support her and her fund.
The blurred image posted on social networking site Facebook by Bieber shows both Malala and Bieber in high spirits, happily chatting away. Bieber’s online rendezvous with Malala adds to his generous celebrity profile.
Malala took the world by storm in 2012 when she was attacked by Taliban for openly sounding her experiences under the Taliban reign in a blog in 2009. Since then Malala has become more of a household name in Pakistan, with a lot of educational activists in the region pinning their hopes and aspirations on this young activist.
Last year on her birthday – 16th July, 2013, Malala delivered a speech at the UN, addressing the cause of education and called for worldwide accessibility to education. The UN marked the day as “Malala Day” highlighting her first public address.
