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 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.
