World's Youngest Nobel Prize Laureate
She is the world's youngest Nobel Prize laureate, and second Pakistani to get this award. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan had at a time banned girls from attending school.
Malala Yousafzai became the face of Taliban brutality when she chose to go to her school in the Swat Valley. An armed Taliban gunman boarded Malala's transport on October 9, 2012, and shot her in the head.
She and her family resides in Birmingham currently after the attempted assassination. Her advocacy has now grown into an international movement.
The couple looks adorable in these recent pictures and we wish them all the best for their future together!
