Malala continued to share her message of peace and education throughout the world, and meeting many different special people.
Malala was a young girl who loved learning in Swat Valley of Pakistan. However, a terrorist group called the Taliban took control of the village, not allowing TVs, shaved beards, and worst of all, women's education. They said it was too “western” which was obviously silly. They went from taking over a radio station to bombing girls' schools, and forcing families to give them money or join them. The BBC asked Malala to make a blog about living under the Taliban's control with the alias “Gul Makai”. However, Malala’s identity was found out, making her and her father a target of the Taliban.
One day when Malala was only 15 years old, she was on a bus going home from school. A gunman from the Taliban entered the bus. He shot Malala through the head, and she was sent to a Pakistani hospital. However, that wasn’t enough. So she was sent to a hospital in Birmingham, England. The recovery took a very long time, but the letters Malala got from all over the world made the recovery better.
Once Malala was finally recovered, she continued to live in Birmingham. At only age 17, she was notified that she got the Nobel Peace Prize during chemistry class. This made her the youngest person to get this prestigious award. Malala continued to share her message of peace and education throughout the world, and meeting many different special people.
