The Taliban have never come for a small girl. In Malala's new book, the year-old worldwide symbol for peace and education details the day she was shot point-blank on her way home from school. Malala was 11 years old when she took a stand against the Taliban, who had issued an edict that all girls' schools should be closed.
She began advocating for the right to go to school, writing an anonymous blog for the BBC and appearing in a New York Times documentary. And Malala's increasing visibility put her at risk as well.
Before the shooting, Malala wrote that she considered what she would do if a terrorist jumped out and shot her. What you are doing is wrong. I'm not against you personally. I just want every girl to go to school. On Oct. Her best friend, Moniba, thought it was a reporter wanting to talk to Malala. The masked man approached the vehicle and demanded, "Who is Malala?
She was the only one with her face uncovered. Moniba tells me I squeezed her hand. I slumped forward onto Moniba, blood coming from my left ear, so the other two bullets hit the girls next to me My friends later told me the gunman's hand was shaking as he fired. The bullet narrowly missed Malala's brain and she was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, six days after the attack.
She spent nearly three months in the hospital and underwent numerous surgeries. Now Malala and her family are living in Birmingham and she is back at school.
She spent her 16th birthday giving a speech at the United Nations and has become the youngest person to ever be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. She has also founded the Malala Funda nonprofit organization that advocates for and supports girls education around the world through grants and partner collaborations. It's a second life," she said.
