Malala Yousafzai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway yesterday. She is the youngest recipient ever.
The 17 year-old said of the award, "It is for
those forgotten children who want education. It is for those frightened children
who want peace. It is for those voiceless children who want change...
It is time to take action so it becomes the last time that we see a
child deprived of education."
