Malala Yousafzai is unstoppable, fearless and continues fighting for the education of girls in Pakistan. The 17-year-old became the youngest person today to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.

Two years ago Malala came to everyone's attention when she was shot in the head by the Taliban. After she recovered from the shooting, Malala took her campaign around the world and today is the spokeswoman for the right for children to get a quality education. She has also started the Malala Foundation.

Here is what she had to say when she received her Nobel Prize.

Malala shares the 95th Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi. He has been fighting against the exploitation and trafficking of children in India for decades.

Here's an extensive interview Malala did with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart. She actually left him speechless. Malala will leave you inspired.

I hope this blog has encouraged you to find children in your neighborhood who need a helping hand. If Malala can do it at her age, we can surely do our part.
