Who Am I?

STEWART/MALALA YOUSAFZAI




On The Daily Show earlier this month, John Stewart interviewed Malala Yousafzai.

Born in Pakistan, Malala is a women's education advocate in her country. Last year, the Taliban issued a death threat against her for her willingness to speak out and advocate her position. That same group acted upon that threat and shot her in the face. Malala survived the attacked and authored a book titled I Am Malala. Recently she was recommended for the Nobel Peace Prize becoming the youngest person ever to receive that nomination.

I highly suggest watching this interview.
