The United Nations had declared July 12th as Malala Day to commemorate not only young activist’s birthday, but also the day she delivered a powerful speech at the UN to call for worldwide access to education.

She was targeted by the Taliban in an assassination attempt for speaking against them and encouraging young people to use education to battle against them.
