From The Current archives: Malala Yousafzai on her fight for female education in Pakistan
Six years after she was shot in the head by Taliban gunman, an emotional Malala Yousafzai arrived to her native Pakistan early Thursday morning.
"I'm still 20 years old but I've seen so many things in life," the education advocate and Nobel Peace Prize winner said on national television, wiping away tears.
Yousafzai was 15 years old when a would-be assassin shot her in the head as she headed home from school in Pakistan. She was targeted for publicly advocating greater education of girls.
In 2013, on the first anniversary of that attack, Malala sat down with Anna Maria Tremonti for her only Canadian interview, to speak about her fight for female education in Pakistan and life in the crosshairs of the Taliban.
