Malala Yousafzai has become the youngest winner, at 17, of the Nobel Peace Prize, co-winning with Kailash Satyarthi for their work defending children's rights. With 31 million girls around the world not having access to education, Pakistan born Malala has for many years made it her mission to advocate for the importance of girls being able to go to school, something those of us in New Zealand take for granted.
Her voice was starting to be heard the world over when on 9 October 2012 she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman who had asked for her by name and unbelievably she survived and recovered. On her sixteenth birthday, less than a year later she addressed the United Nations Youth Assembly about her passion for and the importance of education.
She lives with her family in Birmingham, England now and was told during a chemistry class that she had won the Peace Prize. What a remarkable young woman.
An hour into Ulearn Conference and I've found my favourite search tool for immersing yourself at the beginning of your inquiry.

Derek Landy visited Wellington today and entertained a group of avid fans at Scots College - they must have been real fans of the stalkerish variety as many of them dressed up as characters from the Skulduggery Pleasant series. He charmed his audience (young and not so young) with his adorable rudeness and humour, refused to tell his cats story and just about told us about the movie deal (nearly, almost about to be announced). The library has a copy so reserve it as soon as you get back to school. Thanks to The Children's Bookshop for organising this event - you guys rock! (And they raised money for The Save the Children Fund in the process).
