Activist Malala Yousafzai returns to Pakistan for First Time since Shooting - BellaNaija

Malala Yousafzai

Almost 6 years ago, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head on her way to school in Pakistan.

Today, a 20-year-old Nobel laureate has returned to Pakistan for the first time since the attack.

According to CNN, Malala on Thursday morning arrived the Benazir Bhutto International Airport guarded by heavy security.

The 20-year-old gave an emotional speech after meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

“I’m not very old but I’ve seen a lot,” she said. “I couldn’t control what happened, if it was my choice I wouldn’t have left my country at all. I had no choice, I had to leave for my life.”

She hoped that “we all join hands for the betterment of Pakistan for our future, to empower our women so they can earn and stand on their own two feet,” she added.

Abbasi, receiving her, said:

You represent us in the world and especially of the youth and girls and the work you’ve done for education of girls.

It is our dream and prayers that you are successful, our prayers with you. Welcome home Malala!
