Receives Nobel Peace Prize

Nobel Prize0 Comments

Yousafzai becomes the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize since it was created in 1901.

I was totally surprised when she told me, ‘Congratulations, you have won the Nobel Peace Prize, and you are sharing it with a great person who is also working for children’s rights.’

She will share the $1.1 million prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a veteran, soft-spoken activist based in New Delhi who has rescued trafficked children from slavery.
