My inspiration of the week comes from 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai. She has to be one of the bravest girls on the planet.

She’s the Pakistani activist who survived being shot by the Taliban. The Taliban targeted her because Malala has been outspoken about the need for education for girls in her homeland.

This past week she was awarded the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. Malala was the youngest person nominated for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. She’s also the author of I am Malala.

I saw many interviews with her this week while she visited the U.S., but I thought Jon Stewart did one of the best interviews. Though the topic was serious, every once in a while Stewart got a laugh out of Malala. He told her “Nothing feels better than making you laugh.”
