Yousafzai is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate, receiving the distinction in 2014 — she received honorary Canadian citizenship in 2017. Inspired by her father's humanitarian work and advocacy for education, Yousafzai began speaking about education rights at age 11 when her father took her to speak at a local press club in Pakistan. She survived an assassination attempt at 15 years of age and quickly became a prominent activist, focusing largely on education for girls. She has also spoken before the United Nations and with world leaders to advocate on behalf of women's and children's rights. Follow SAMAA English on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
