Weekly Watch: The Inspirational Malala Yousafzai

This week’s video features a true inspiration; Malala Yousafzai who is a 16 year old schoolgirl and an education activist. Yousafzai stands up for the rights of women to have equal opportunities in education all over the world.

The pupil overcame a Taliban attack at the age of 14, after gunmen shot her in the head and neck leaving her in a critical condition. Since the assassination attempt she is even more determined to spread her views with the world.

Malala Yousafzai took to the sofa on ‘The Daily Show’ and stunned the audience and presenter, Jon Stewart, with her motivational words. In the clip above the student speaks about what she would say to the Taliban and causes Jon Stewart to cover his mouth in awe of her brave nature.

Yousafzai recently received a 2013 Pride of Britain award, presented to her by football-star David Beckham whilst in America sharing her views for female rights to education and her battle with the Taliban.
