The 20-year-old inspiration was targeted by the Taliban back in 2012 and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. Malala had been writing about life under Taliban rule in blogs for the BBC when she was shot.

Malala was treated for her injury in England and finished up her schooling in Birmingham, England. She has continued advocating for female education over the years, and won the Nobel Prize in 2014.

She announced her exciting news on Twitter! Congratulations!!

Malala Yousafzai Speaks Out Against Trump's Order on Refugees

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday (January 27) that blocked refugees from entering the United States and now activist Malala Yousafzai is speaking out against the order.

The order also indefinitely bans the people of Syria from entering the country and temporarily suspends immigration from several other Muslim countries.

An Oscar-nominated director might not even be able to attend the Academy Awards next month as he is from Iran.

“I am heartbroken that today President Trump is closing the door on children, mothers and fathers fleeing violence and war. I am heartbroken that America is turning its back on a proud history of welcoming refugees and immigrants – the people who helped build your country, ready to work hard in exchange for a fair chance at a new life,” Malala said in a statement.

Emma Watson Interviews Malala Yousafzai & Wants To Make Her a Feminist

Emma Watson had the opportunity of a lifetime earlier this week to interview Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.

The 25-year-old actress and activist shared her experience with her fans on Facebook. Here’s what she wrote:

“Today I met Malala. She was giving, utterly graceful, compelling and intelligent. That might sound obvious but I was struck by this even more in person. There are lots of NGOs out there in the world doing great things… But if there were one I would put my money on to succeed and make change on this planet, it would be hers. (The Malala Fund). Malala isn’t messing around or mincing her words (one of the many reasons I love her). She has the strength of her convictions coupled with the kind of determination I rarely encounter… And it doesn’t seem to have been diminished by the success she has already had. And lastly…She has a sense of peace around her. I leave this for last because it is perhaps the most important. Maybe as a result of what she has been through? I personally think it is just who she is…

“Perhaps the most moving moment of today for me was when Malala addressed the issue of feminism. To give you some background, I had initially planned to ask Malala whether or not she was a feminist but then researched to see whether she had used this word to describe herself. Having seen that she hadn’t, I decided to take the question out before the day of our interview. To my utter shock Malala put the question back into one of her own answers and identified herself. Maybe feminist isn’t the easiest word to use… But she did it ANYWAY. You can probably see in the interview how I felt about this. She also gave me time at the end of the Q&A to speak about some of my own work, which she most certainly didn’t need to do, I was there to interview her. I think this gesture is so emblematic of what Malala and I went on to discuss. I’ve spoken before on what a controversial word feminism is currently. More recently, I am learning what a factionalized movement it is too. We are all moving towards the same goal. Let’s not make it scary to say you’re a feminist. I want to make it a welcoming and inclusive movement. Let’s join our hands and move together so we can make real change. Malala and I are pretty serious about it but we need you.

“With love, Emma x”

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.”

Reese Witherspoon Congratulates Malala Yousafzai on Winning Nobel Peace Prize

Reese Witherspoon looks gorgeous while attending the 2014 Variety Power of Women presented by Lifetime on Friday afternoon (October 10) at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons in Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old actress was an honoree at the event for her work with the Malala Fund. The event just so happened to take place on the day it was announced Malala Yousafzai will be receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

“A huge heartfelt congrats to #Malala on winning the #NobelPeacePrize today!!!” Reese wrote on Instagram. “At 17 years old, you awe and inspire so many children and adults with your strength, hard work and powerful message. It’s equally inspiring to see, on days like today, how people around the world are actively supporting and pushing you closer towards your goals – of getting children everywhere to get to go to school, of women’s equal rights, of spreading messages of hope and non-violence, and so much more. 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 @malalafund #Hope #StrongerThan.”
