All she wanted was to go to school.
The Taliban told 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai that she could not, threatened her, but still, she went. Because she refused to be intimidated, the Taliban shot her in the head.
Miraculously, Malala Yousafzai survived the assassination attempt. Now, at 16, Malala is a formidable force in the fight to educate girls – still just a girl herself, she is speaking truth to power all over the world to get her message out.
CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour will speak with Malala, in an event broadcast around the world, in front of a live townhall audience in New York.
On stage with them will be Malala’s father and dozens of school children passionate about Malala’s cause; among the students will be one lucky winner of a national essay contest, flown to New York to meet Malala in person.
Be sure to tune in on Sunday, October 13 at 7pm ET, and see why Malala Yousafzai is The Bravest Girl in the World.
(The Bravest Girl in the World will also air during Amanpour's normal Monday timeslot, 2pm ET, 2000 CET.)
When will the winner of the essay contest be announced, or has it been announced already? I haven't heard anything yet.
She is indeed the bravest girl in the world, despite all that happen to her, she still stands firm for girls right to be educated.

Proud to say "I AM MALALA" ! Thanx my dear little girl >>>> u make every Single Pakistani Proud of u !
Waiting so anxiously for this Interview :)
My question is directed towards Christiane Amanpoure and Christina Lamb: Are you guys as naive as your words portray you to be? Whose maskot Malala is anyway? Isn't she a masala product of the Taliban and CIA who are both bent upon destroying the country and its image? Aren't Malala and the Taliban two sides of the same coin?
Listen Arshad, I am Pakistani and I believe she is not only brave girl
but a symbol of freedom/liberty for millions of women in Pakistan.
Please don’t be Conspiractani be a Pakistani with rational thinking.
Born in natural anger, I wonder whose goal will millions of voices sound.
bad comments come from pakistanis thats sad MALALA is a hero
Yes, we have such deplorable conditions in
our universities. The question is what does
the Vice-chancellors of Universities do with
all the fees paid by students, and rents paid
by staff living in university quarters?. A
breakdown of the fees show that students
pay for maintenance, light, medical, sports,
library, lab/audio visuals etc, lets say in a
hostel the actual students supposed to stay
in a room are 4. this number multiplied by
hostel charge of N10,000. equals N40000,
an average second generation university
has at least 30,000 students. Multiply this
number to the fees paid by full time
students of N25,000 this equals
N7500000000. This money can be used to
maintain infrastructure, provide equipment
in the Universities, but, this isn't the case.
University management mis-management
all the funds and expect government to
provide money. Vice-chancellors connive
with bursars to loot the system, after their
tenure, they aren't probed. What happened
in south south university after their riot a
few years back. Each student was asked to
pay N10000, from diploma, long distance,
to Ph.D students. The school has a total
population of over 40,000 students.
Multiply that amount, it sums up to N400
million. They spent less than 10 million
fixing the damage caused by students, what
happened to the rest? What happened to
the money? Part time students pay over
N60000 a session. Multiply that by 10000
part time students it equals N600 million.
The least fees a postgraduate student pays
is N150000 a session. Multiply that by
3000 postgraduate students admitted, it
equals N450 million. Some universities
charge N15000 for P.G forms, multiply that
by 3000 people who may apply it equals
N45million. Now, for post ume exams, a
students pays N2000 for the forms,
multiply that 5000 students who may apply
into a university, it equals N10 million,
there's also the sale of forms for pre-degree
and part time undergraduate programmes,
monies run into millions of naira each year.
The question is what happens to them?
Government established TETFUND, there
is ETF. This establishment raises billions
for tertiary universities. The truth is until
corruption is checked in the system it will
be hard for us to move ahead. Now ASUU
wants 3trillion naira? hmm, I laugh.
Nigerians and their corruption,The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU on strike for the past 3 months, meaning university education is down.
The Nobel Committee should stop giving prizes to groups. EU? UN? That is silly. Please divide the efforts of an organisation by the number of members and you will find that Malala has done 100x more for the human race than the best single member of any UN organisation, who are just told what to do and payed for what they do. I am disappointed with some decisions and the Nobel Prize and it has DEVALUED itself in importance. Malala is a heric and the commitee members are cowards who were afraid to choose her to avoid being hated/bombed by the Taliban. RRG2013
I will beg to differ with what the the media is saying about Malala being the bravest girl in the world. We all know that she's just a product of the media. Come to Africa where there are restrictions here and there about girls going to school. Yet you will find girls who are braving every obstacle just to get a good education. No one seems to notice. I am not refusing that Malala is a model. I just want to voice my dissatisfaction to the way the media is handling the whole issue. I was alarmed when i heard that she was a possible recipient of this year's Nobel Peace Prize, thank God that didn't happen. I think the Nobel Committee already foresaw the criticism they would get is she was selected.
Please, I want some important issues concerning Nigeria to be brought up and discussed. The country is in need of help from the International community. I wrote an article about my country, and the web line is in the website tab of my message.
Hope to get youe feedback.
I suppprt her dream of of lending voice for those who can't to speak out. There is a purpose which God serve her for.
