Malala Yousafzai is a symbol of hope, bravery and optimism. She has been recognized globally for her work for the rights of women especially their education.
She was recently interviewed by Tweak India which was hosted by Twinkle Khanna. While sharing the interview clip, Twinkle Khanna wrote, “Tweak turns one today and to kick off the celebrations we have the wonderful @malala with us. This was a surreal day. It was meant to be an audio interview which turned into a video. I also managed to jab my eye with a kohl pencil, in a hurry. I shouldn’t have really bothered with it, because she made me cry and that kohl only ended up as a smudge. Here we are, talking about using your voice, your platform, to make a difference.“
Malala Yousafzai talked about how she handles being a famous student and shared, “Becoming well known at a very young age was challenging. I did not have anyone to guide me and I had to learn everything myself. I was not like, you know, a TV celebrity. So like even the fame and support I got was different. It was like Malala you are an inspiration for us. So for me, it was like thank you so much for supporting me and thank you for standing up with me. And if they would ask for a picture, why not.”
Malala talks about how she has fun and said, “For me, fun means spending time with friends whether that’s going out to a restaurant and having lunch together or going to a movie. There are many societies in Oxford so I sometimes go to the cricket club and have played for my college.”
