Malala Yousafzai Wins The Nobel Peace Prize!

Yesterday an amazing thing happened-Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi. She is the youngest recipient and the first Pakistani to ever win and I think she totally deserves it.

At school in Birmingham, England, Malala was notified that she had won the Nobel Peace Prize. However, being the studious girl she is, she decided to finish the school day first. Malala said that she felt “really honoured” to win this prestigious award.

Malala received the award for leading her “heroic struggle” in giving girls access to education. The other recipient was Kailash Satyarthi who won the award for following Ghandi’s belief and leading peaceful protests to end child slavery.

Malala is such an inspiration to both me and millions of girls around the world!

 Thanks for joining me on my journey to change the world!
