Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani activist, just gave pretty much the most eloquent, stirring speech ever about pacifism, feminism, and the importance of education. Her wisdom prompted a request from Jon Stewart to adopt her. Fellow teen prodigy Tavi is even a fan.
Yousafzai just won the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and is nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, which will be awarded Friday. If she wins, she’ll be the youngest ever Nobel laureate.
