Malala tells her story to John Stewart

Nobel Peace Prize contender Malala Yousafzai hits satirical news show, 'The Daily Show,' to promote her book and her cause.

PT0M0S 620 349

Yesterday marked exactly one year since a Taliban gunman boarded Malala Yousafzai's tiny school bus in the remote Swat Valley of Pakistan, called out her name, and put a bullet through the left side of her head.

"I'm not sad about anything that happened on that day" she told Fairfax Media by phone from New York. "It was just part of my life and I must learn from that. Now I am more strong, I have got more courage than I had before. And on October 9 we will celebrate, not that on this day Malala was shot, but that on this day Malala is surviving."

If that quote alone doesn't make your spirit soar then wait until you hear the humbling, inspiring and articulate way she describes her experience to Jon Stewart in this clip from the latest episode of Daily Show. Later in the interview Stewart asks if he can adopt Malala. You're about to feel the same way.

    • I watched this interview, I am a big fan of Jon Stewart and his interview style. Malala came across as an inspiring, warm and intelligent (& funny) young women and someone the world should look up to as an inspiration and voice for women everywhere and take notice of as a true leader for the future. Truly incredible! Well done to Jon Stewart and The Daily Show for a great interview!

      • What an amazing young lady! She is exactly what the world needs. She is going to do so many great things for girls the world over. I just hope that the narrow-minded haters of the Taliban and their ilk are kept at bay.
        A very worthy contender for the Nobel prize for Peace.
        Bless her
