Malala Yousafzai was born on the 12th of July 1997. She lived and grew up in a small town in Pakistan called Mingora Pakhtunkhwa. As a young girl Malala would continually go to school ignoring the Taliban's orders for females to cease their educational life at school. At the age of 15 Malala was shot in the head and neck by the Taliban. She is a teenage activist who supports girls education. Malala later won the peace prize when she was only 17, which makes her the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Peace Prize.
Malala’s cause was to stand up for girls education and not allow the Taliban to suppress the girls from learning at school. The main reason for Malala’s bravery was because she personally felt that the girls didn’t deserve getting prohibited from what they wanted for their future. Sure, Malala was frightened of the Taliban, but she was more afraid for the girls’ who were going to lose their education because of the pressure that was placed upon them.
