Humanitarian and education activitist Malala Yousafzai is on the verge of making Pakistan proud once again.
The 21 years old will be bestowed with the prestigious 2018 Gleitsman Award from the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School.
The event which will be held on December 6, at Harvard Kennedy School is going to be a public gathering. In recognition of her non-profit organization 'Malala Fund' that aims to provide 12 years of free, safe and quality education to girls, Malala will be given this award.
"Alan Gleitsman, whose philanthropy made this award possible, believed in individuals whose vision inspired others to confront injustice," said David Gergen, professor of Public Service at Harvard Kennedy School.
“He was an ardent supporter of Harvard Kennedy School’s efforts to cultivate the world’s youngest change makers and would be so pleased by today’s announcement,” added Professor David on Malala's selection whom he called an inspiration for youngsters.
Earlier in 2014 Malala became the youngest winner of Nobel Award on the back of her struggle against oppression and provision of education to girls worldwide. In addition to that, Malala's educational NGO 'Malala Fund' has been endorsed by celebrities including but not limited to Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Melinda Gates, Selena Gomez, Edward Norton and Orlando Bloom.
