Malala got the Nobel and wants to become the prime minister of Pakistan. Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, shot by the Taliban for refusing to quit school has received her Nobel Peace Prizes on Wednesday. Malala became by far the youngest laureate, widely praised for her global campaigning since she was shot in the head on her school bus in 2012. Some groups in Pakistan, however, have accused her of being a puppet of the West and violating the tenets of conservative Islam.
“I tell my story, not because it is unique, but because it is not,” said Malala, 17, better known by her first name, which is also the title of her book and the name of her foundation.
“It is the story of many girls,” she said in Oslo’s ornate city hall on the anniversary of Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel’s death.
