Malala Reaches Out to Young Audience

Malala visited ABC "Good Morning America" Monday to announce the release of "I Am Malala" for young readers. The memoir was adapted to reach a younger audience and start inspiring children to believe in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world.

In her interview with Amy Robach, Malala shared her dream of attending university in able to enter politics and become the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Malala hopes to become the Prime Minister to be able to help her country.

When asked about being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for the second year in a row, Malala humbly said that she does not deserve the award yet. She said, "I started this campaign....when I have achieved this big goal which I always dream for, then I'll think 'okay now I deserve it', but it is very early now."

Malala is only 17 and already has achieved so much, though her next big plan is to learn how to drive! Watch the video below to hear her discuss her political aspirations, education goals, and her excitement to turn 18.

If you are interested in the young readers edition of Malala's book it is now on sale under the title, "I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World".
