Shot in head by Taliban, amazing 16 y.o. education advocate leaves Jon Stewart speechless

This is a rather amazing video of 16 year old Nobel Peace Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai, an education activist from Pakistan who was shot in the head at the age of 15 in a Taliban-backed assassination attempt, and survived.

Malala-Yousafzai

Malala is an advocate for the education of young girls, something the Taliban bans, and something they deem worthy of the death penalty, even if the victim is a 15 year old girl. Simply amazing.

At one point in the interview, explaining a near run-in with a member of the Taliban, she explains her philosophy of life. Stewart is left speechless.
