At just 17-years-old, Malala Yousafzai has been nominated for her SECOND Nobel Peace Prize. However, her reaction to this exciting news is not what you might expect it to be…

Malala Yousafzai, 17, is re-releasing her book, My Name Is Malala, with a brand-new version geared towards a younger audience. While she hopes the book encourages young girls to fight for their rights and believe in themselves, the young activist has been nominated for her second Nobel Peace Prize in just two years.

Malala Yousafzai Nominated For Second Nobel Peace Prize

Wow. Can you imagine being a teenager and being nominated for not one, but TWO Nobel Peace Prizes?

For Malala, no imagination is needed — because this is now the reality of her life at 17. Malala has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for the second time. but believe it or not she does not think she is ready for it.

“Last year I said that I still do not deserve it and I still say that. Because I have started a campaign, and it’s not over yet. It’s not completed yet,” she told Good Morning America on Monday, Aug. 18. When I see that I have done something and I have achieved this big goal which I [have] always dreamed for then I will think okay, now I deserve it. But it’s very early now.”

Not only is Malala a true hero for women and young girls everywhere, but she is also very modest.

Hopefully lots of young kids will read I Am Malala and learn how to find their inner strength just like she did.

Malala Wants To Be Prime Minister Of Pakistan

While she’s not quite ready to accept her Nobel Peace Prize, there is one thing that Malala has her eye on: a title.

In fact, it’s one very, very big title — Prime Minister of Pakistan.

“This is my dream to become the Prime Minister of Pakistan,” Malala shared during her interview while discussing where she would like to go to college. “So, I’m hoping to go to a good university. Thinking about Oxford and Harvard, and hope that I’ll get admission. After that I still have this idea of joining politics.”

If anyone can do it, Malala can!

this girl is the messenger of God!! in whatever entity all of you think, Malala is everything this!! it is Jewish, Christian, Moslems, Buddhist, its voice says all of this that of human and sacred it makes us thinking men aware of what must be, Malala is patrimony of the humanity, to protect his/her invocations means to preserve the human kind. ……….. perhaps the big Mother Teresa of Calcutta has wanted it stuffed another immense gift asking to God to make to be born Malala. ….
