Cover Art for I am Malala

Happy 19th Birthday to Malala Yousafzai, the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. Malala is a passionate human rights advocate, particularly when it comes to the education of women in her country of Pakistan. In October, 2012, Malala was shot and her attempted murder sparked a national and international outpouring of support. The shooting only encouraged Malala to continue her activism and she remains a source of motivation. Learn more about this inspirational young woman in her autobiography I Am Malala (also available in a young reader’s edition) or the documentary He Named Me Malala.
