On this the day of teachers, I thank everyone who doesn't make enough to be all that a teacher must be. But how great the riches are to the spirit, and to the life of every child you touch! If you can read this, thank your teachers:)
That said, she is indeed an amazing young woman as she dared to believe in her dream, and to get involved where others only wished to, and might have wished her well. We need more like her, and the animals and the children deserve nothing less.Ty Cal!

She's not the only one either; just the most recognized - an amazing young woman. You Muslim nerds need to grow up and start treating women with the respect they deserve. Were y'all born in a tank?

Haven't spoken with a single human being who doesn't love Malala! I'd say that Malala is already one of the most empowering of humanity's rights and will remain so, for a very long time,...

Fantastic young woman and so far advanced in her years and to also survive an assassination attempt, we have not heard the last from Malala......A true noble peace prize laureate!

We need more young women like her. It is about time they start to speak up. Unfortunately, in her country this can mean their death sentence.

Hi Birgit!
agreed, that Malala's fearlessness is rarely rewarded,
most especially in the male dominated cultures.

However, Malala has already voiced so much wisdom that cannot be forgotten,
- I believe her message is already imprinted on our world.

Long Live Malala

In the face of adversity this young lady has shown extreme determination,bravery, leadership & courage. May she go & grow from strenght to strenght! She is a an ideal role model & is the glimmer of hope so lacking in the lives of thousands of unfortunate children in the world. Salamat to Malala!

Malala is courageous, and brave and people of all ages, both genders and all religions should listen to her. Not least of all the young people in the West who take education for granted, or even throw it away by wasting their time playing truant!

I was disappointed that she did not get the Nobel Peace Prize. However, as any sports fan will tell you, wait till next year!

This girl is not only smart but brave beyond belief. It is difficult to know that in this day and age so many of the Taliban men are so narrow minded, have tunnel vision, stupid, self centered, barbaric evil ways. Evidently they have decreed that women are slaves. They are living in the dark ages and I do not think they will emerge until defeated.

Is there a braver, more inspirational female on the planet than young Malala?

A truly remarkable young lady.
