Peace is the Answer with Robin Stienberg Review, National Critics Choice

The Nobel Peace Prize will be announced this week. Most of the people hope that it will be Malala Yousafzai , the Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban on her way to school. She had took some good efforts to promote girls education in Pakistan. Malala who didn’t obey the warning from Taliban had shot on his head on October 9 last year. But she survived and became a global ambassador for education. She had spent the past year in England -- first for treatment and then to continue her education.

Malala has been one of the most famous teenagers in the world. "If I win Nobel Peace Prize, it would be a great opportunity for me, but if I don't get it, it's not important because my goal is not to get Nobel Peace Prize, my goal is to get peace and my goal is to see education of every child."- Malala told to BBC.

If she wins the 16-year-old will be the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela have won the award in the past.
