Title: “Malala Yousafzai's Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech” 
Sender: Malala Yousafzai
Malala Yousafzai (b. 1997) is a Pakistani activist known for her human rights advocacy efforts, especially for providing girls with equal opportunities for education. Yousafzai began to advocate for education at a young age, when the local Taliban took power in her native district of Swat in Pakistan and banned girls from attending school. After Yousafzai survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2012, her activism grew into an international movement for the right to education, and she became an influential global figure. In 2014, at the age of 17, Yousafzai became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, which she received for her efforts to promote the right of all children to education.
