Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi win the Nobel Peace Prize


Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban two years ago, is sharing the Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi.  She wanted to go back to school, she wanted to learn and to be who "I can be." She had wanted to become a doctor, but now she wants to become a politician. She advocates every child to go to school, and stand up for their rights. 

Listen to the first part, it was very emotional for me, I was very moved.  If you have time, also listen to the second part, where Malala is speaking with more details.
