For the final Andes Roundtable Digital Speaker Series for 2014, Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize recipient will be the topic for discussion. Her 2013 speech to the UN General Assembly will be shown and her goals, dreams, and courage will be open for discussion. On 9 October 2012 she was sought out by name by a Taliban that boarded her school bus and shot her in the head. She was in critical condition but lived and became an internationally recognized advocate for girls’ education. This remarkable young lady deserves our attention and discussion.
