Youngest Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai will answer all your questions on TikTok as she just joined the video-sharing platform.
In a video uploaded on Instagram, she shared the details of her TikTok account username and welcomed everyone to ask her any questions they might have. She also appealed to the listeners to donate to the Malala Fund on account of Giving Tuesday.
“Some of you might already know me, you might have heard my UN speech or might have read my book I am Malala, while some of you might not know me, so I’ll briefly introduce myself,” she said, adding that she was fond of shoes, comedy and reading books.
“I’ve also done campaigning and advocacy for 12 years for education and safe quality of education for all girls around the world,” she added, encouraging people to donate to her cause and support her fundraising campaign for sending girls to school.
“In return, I will be answering some of the questions you send today,” she urged fellow Tiktokers.
Born in Swat, Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, into a lower-middle-class family and comes from a very humble background.
Inspired by the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and the two-time elected Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Yousafzai started speaking about education rights as early as September 2008, when her father took her to Peshawar to speak at the local press club.
“How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?” Yousafzai asked her audience in a speech covered by newspapers and television channels throughout the region.
She was then attacked by the Taliban for her statements and shot in the head after which she was taken to England where she has since stayed. She recently graduated from Oxford University and is actively pursuing her charity work.
