Activist Malala Yousafzai Accepts Nobel Peace Prize in Norway
Malala Yousafzai stands by fellow honoree Kailash Satyarthi after the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony held at Oslo City Town Hall on Wednesday morning (December 10) in Oslo, Norway.
The 17-year-old activist, who was shot in the head by Taliban members in 2012, is the youngest person to ever receive the prize.
“I tell my story not because it is unique but because it is not,” Malala said in her speech. “It is the story of many girls. Today, I tell their stories too. I have brought with me some of my sisters from Pakistan, from Nigeria, and from Syria who share this story.”
She added, “This award is not just for me. It is for those forgotten children who want education. It is for those frightened children who want peace. It is for those voiceless children who want change. I am here to stand up for their rights, to raise their voice. It is not time to pity them.”
