Islamabad, Oct 14/Nationalturk – Pakistani teenage girl and Nobel laureate Malala Yousufzai alongwith daughters of US President Barack Hussain Obama has made it in Time’s annual list of most influential teenagers.
According to Times magazine, 17-year-old Pakistani education activist and nobel prize winner Malala, Us president’s daughters Malala, 16, and Sasha, 13 were all on the unranked list dominated by 20 females.
Time said it compiled its list of 25 teens — 29, counting accolades shared by siblings and partners — by analysing their social media following, business successes and cultural importance.
The youngest were Sasha Obama and fellow 13-year-old Mo’ne Davis, a pitching sensation who led her Philadelphia boys’ baseball team to the Little League World Series and landed a spot on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Malala survived assassination bid in 2012
Malala, who survived Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) assassination attempt in Pakistan’s Swat in 2012, was recently announced as joint winner of Nobel prize for peace alongwith Indian children rights activist, Kailash Satyarthi.
She was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 after campaigning for more access to education for girls and has since become recognisable worldwide.
After being announced winner of Nobel peace prize, Malala had said she was highly honoured.
She is the first Pakistani female and youngest ever to win Nobel peace prize.
Malala has requested the prime minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif to attend her award giving ceremony.
