"I tell my story not because it is unique,
but because it is the story of many girls."
At just 15-years old, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head on a school bus by the Taliban in Pakistan for daring to speak out against a ban on education for girls. It is a story that is known across the world.
Malala survived, and has gone on to become a role model for women globally. Now 21, she has devoted her life to being a voice in the fight to ensure all girls receive 12 years of free, safe, quality education.
Ahead of her first visit to Australia, where she will share her story at UNICEF Australia-partnered events in Sydney and Melbourne, we look back at Malala's inspiring journey with UNICEF.
