Malala Yousafzay is a Pakistanese girl. This winter, she was shot in the head by Talibans in her country because she wanted girls to be educated.
She was sent to England to be operated on and she was saved. She was given British nationality for her and her family.
Last week, on her 16th birthday, she went into the UN (= ONU in French) building to give a speech about education.
She said : “one child, one teacher, one book, and one pen, can change the world.” and “Education is the only solution”.
She said she forgives the person who tried to kill her. She also said she wants education for the children of the terrorists as well as for all children.
