Malala was nearly killed by the Taliban in Pakistan for campaigning for girls' rights to education in 2012. She became internationally known after the incident and relocated with her family to Birmingham for further rehabilitation.
In 2014, at age of 17, Malala became the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and has since become a symbol for the fight for human rights and education. In April, she became the youngest-ever UN Messenger of Peace.
