PESHAWAR, 11 April: Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai was appointed the United Nations Messenger of Peace to promote girls’ education on Monday.

The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on the occasion that Malala, who is very committed and generous, is a role model for the whole world.

Malala said on the occasion that she is proud to be a Pakistani. She said the Taliban had tried to killer her, but they failed in their mission. She said she has dedicated her second life for promotion of education.

At 19, Malala is the youngest Messenger of Peace, the highest honour given by the United Nations for an initial period of two years. She was also the youngest person to win the Nobel peace prize in 2014 when she was 17.

Malala came to prominence when a Taliban gunman shot her in the head in 2012 as she was leaving school in Swat. She was targeted for her campaign against efforts by the Taliban to deny women education. Malala survived the attack and shifted to the UK from where she started efforts for promotion of girls’ education throughout the world.
