Malala, the youngest Nobel Laureate, came to the world’s attention when her fight for the girl-child’s right to education led to being shot.
The then 13-year-old Malala was on her way back from school when a member of the Taliban in her home country of Pakistan shot her.
She was in a coma for days while receiving treatment first in Pakistan and later in the United Kingdom.
