Teen Of The Year—#Malala

Every teenager—no wait—every human should watch this speech which Malala Yousafzai gave to the United Nations Youth Assembly on ‘Malala Day,’ her 16th birthday. Less than a year ago, the Pakistani teenager was shot in the head by the Taliban for campaigning for girls’ education. But that just made her stronger. Her call to action is an inspiration to us all.

Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution.”

Malala will change the world.
