Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai will speak at UF this week on November 18 through the ACCENT Speakers Bureau at UF.
As a young girl, Malala Yousafzai was an activist for girls’ education, starting at the age of 11 in Pakistan. When she was just 15 years old, she was attacked and shot by the Taliban for being an advocate for girls’ education and began a long road of recovery in the United Kingdom. After her miraculous recovery, Malala became the youngest person to win a Nobel Peace Prize at age 17. She is now an author, speaker, activist and Oxford University graduate.
Yousafzai will speak to the University of Florida virtually on November 18 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. through Zoom. In order to attend the event, you must have a valid UFL email address. To sign up for the event, use this link. Spots are limited! Click here for more information about the event!
