Malala: Decade of Youth Rising

Since the age of 11, when Malala started blogging for BBC, she’s been in the international spotlight. Her desire for all girls to receive proper education in her native Pakistan couldn’t be stopped even with a bullet, which she also proved, surviving a close-call assassination attempt.

Later, she became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize as well as Time’s Person of the Year. Now, at 22, she sat down with Teen Vogue to talk openly about muslim representation, Islamophobia and mental health issues. 

This outstanding conversation is part of the #20teens series from Teen Vogue celebrating style, culture, politics and, not least, the rise of youth activism of the last decade. A must-read.
