Malala Yousufzai

Malala Yousafzai, 12, lives in the Swat Valley with her family, pictured on March 26, 2009 in Peshawar, Pakistan. She wants to become a politician and is relieved that the schools have re-opened, but is scared that Taliban militants will forbid school for all girls after the 4th grade.
