Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai reveals she wants to be Pakistan’s PM 

Teenage Pakistani rights activist, Malala Yousafzai has revealed her desire to one day become the Prime Minister of her country.

Malala, the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, won alongside Indian children’s rights activist, Kailash Satyarthi for her “heroic struggle” in favour of girls’ access to education.

She joins the ranks of laureates including Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Aung San Suu Kyi.

The 17-year-old came to prominence after surviving an assassination attempt in October 2012 when her calls for equal rights angered militants in her native Pakistan.

“If I can serve my country best through politics and through becoming a prime minister then I would definitely choose that”, she admitted to the BBC.
