Malala Yousafzai today became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

The announcement comes almost exactly two years after she was shot in the face by a Taliban gunman, for speaking out for girls' education in Pakistan.

She endured months of surgeries, but survived, and since then has only intensified her advocacy for girls' education around the world.

Here & Now's Robin Young sat down with Yousafzai when she came to Boston last fall. We revisit their conversation.
