Malala Yousafzai -- the schoolgirl who survived a near-fatal attack by the Taliban in 2012 -- is the winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. Malala shares the award with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian children's rights activist. A fierce campaigner for girls' right to education, her near death experience has only emboldened her to speak out more for the cause she cares so deeply about. We spoke to Malala Yousafzai in New York last year in an exclusive interview.
