Awesome Humans: Malala Yousafzai

inspiring-humans-malala-101514It’s old news by now (at least by Internet standards, where news travels faster than a texting teen), but last week Malala Yousafzai was awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize (along with Kailash Satyarthi). At just 17 years old, she is the youngest recipient in history. At an age when most teenagers are concerned about little beyond friends and homework, she has already been a tireless education advocate for years.

This (brief) piece on 8 Ways Malala Has Made the World Better for Women is the perfect summation of why she is such an extraordinary young adult.

Congratulations, Malala! You are a credit to Pakistan, ambitious teens, and the whole human race. Knowing you’re in the world makes us happier.
