The Nobel Peace Prize for 2014 was awarded to Malala Yousafzay, the Pakistani education activist by the Norwegian Nobel Committee on Dec. 10.

Ms Yousafzai, now 17, campaigned for girls' education in many years and was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago in Pakistan. After being shot, She has since continued to campaign for girls’ education in Pakistan and the world. She is the youngest ever winner of the prize. She has been jointly awarded the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child rights campaigner.

Malala is proud to be a Muslim: "We strongly believe in Islam. Islam is a religion of peace, but unfortunately some people do not know about this religion" which refers Taliban. Malala expressed his hope to become prime minister of Pakistan.

“I want to serve my country and my dream is that my country becomes a developed country and I see every child get an education," Ms Yousafzai said.

The teenager said it was a great honour to win the prize alongside Kailash Satyarthi.

"Now this peace prize is very important for me and it has really given me more hope, more courage, and I feel stronger than before because I see many people are with me.

Earlier, she awarded the EU's Sakharov human rights prize on October 10 which had been given to former President of South African Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi, a Burmese opposition politician.
