The Most Inspiring 16-year-old We've Ever Seen

Malala Yousafzai, at just 16-years-old, is the youngest person ever to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Malala, the author of the new book, "I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban",  is an advocate for girls education worldwide.

Watch what she has to say about being shot in the face by the Taliban and still wanting to tell her shooter, "How important education is and that I even want education for your children". Malala leaves us and Jon Stewart speechless.

This short interview is so chock full of inspiration it will leave you breathless.

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

    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.
