She was born in the unremarkable city of Mingora, in the equally unremarkable country of Pakistan. When she was but 11 years old, she started writing her own unremarkable blog, calling for “female education reform” under the Taliban. But by age 15, she posed enough of a threat to it, its soldiers gunned her down. She battled death for weeks, but somehow survived her hellacious ordeal. This attempt on her life, however, far from filling her with fear, emboldened her with greater resolve to speak up for girls’ education everywhere. At age 17, Malala Yousafzai became the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
