Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan. As a child, she became an advocate for girls' education, which resulted in the Taliban issuing a death threat against her. On October 9, 2012, a gunman shot Malala when she was traveling home from school. She survived, and has continued to speak out on the importance of education. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2013. In 2014, she was nominated again and won, becoming the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She is currently a student at Oxford University.
Our ornaments aren't just for Christmas trees - use these anywhere you'd like to honor your favorite icons and legends. Each ornament measures a little over 2 inches in diameter, and comes with a red ribbon, packaged in our super cute gift box with information about each icon.
You can display these ornaments on trees, of course, but they are also beautiful in altars, hanging on the wall in your office, in a window, above your bed - use them creatively!
