Malala is the most famous teenager of this decade
This decade has given us many young leader’s and young people making changes. Be it Greta Thunberg or our very own Malala Yousafzai.
The latter has been named the most famous teenager in the world in the second decade of the 21st century by the UN Review.
The first part of the review covers the period between 2010 and the end of 2013 and focuses on Malala’s efforts to promote girls’ education. The report notes, “From a young age, Pakistani student Malala Yousafzai was known for speaking out in favour of the educating girls and highlighting the atrocities of the Taliban.”
Adding on the report notes, “Malala’s activism and profile have only grown since the assassination attempt. She won several high-profile awards, including the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize and became a UN Messenger of Peace in 2017, with a special focus on girls’ education.”
The report also talks about where Malala was born and what happened with her October 2012 when she along with her two friends were shot by a Taliban gunman.
