    Malala is such an inspiring person. I was impressed by how articulate she was in her interview with John Stewart. I hope she can continue to be strong and pursue her dreams. The region of Pakistan where she is from is so beautiful but full of conflict. I wish her and the people of Pakistan, especially the girls and women, the very best.

    Remarkable young lady. I wish her the very best. Knowledge (education) is definitely power and she communicates this message so very, very well.
