  • Whenever I go and speak the only problem I face is that

  • the podium is usually taller than me.

  • so I hope it will be good this time

  • I'm feeling honoured that I am being chosen as the Nobel

  • Laureate and I have been

  • honoured with this precious award to the Nobel Peace

  • Prize

  • and I am proud that I am the first Pakistani and the first

  • young woman or the first young person who is geting

  • this award

  • it is a great honour for me

  • and I am also really happy that I am sharing this award

  • with a person from India whose name is Kailash

  • Satyarthi

  • and his great work for child's rights

  • his great work against child slavery

  • totally inspires me and I'm really happy that there

  • are so many people who are working for children's

  • rights and I'm not alone and he totally

  • deserved this award

  • so I'm feeling honoured that I'm sharing this award with

  • him

  • He received this award and we both are the two Nobel

  • Award receivers

  • one is from Pakistan and one is from India

  • one believes in Hinduism one strongly believes in Islam

  • and it gives a message to people

  • it gives the message to people of love

  • between Pakistan and India

  • and between different religions

  • and we both support each other

  • it does not matter what is the colour of your skin

  • what language do you speak

  • what religion you believe in

  • it is that we should all consider each other

  • as human beings and we should to respect each other

  • and we should all fight for our rights

  • for the rights of children

  • for the rights of woman

  • and for the rights of every human being

  • First of all I would llike to thank my family

  • my dear father my dear mother

  • for their love for their support

  • as my father always says

  • he did not give me something extra

  • what he did

  • he did not clip my wings

  • so I am thankful to my father for not clipping my wings

  • for letting me fly and acheive my goals

  • for showing to the world that a girl is not supposed to be

  • the slave

  • a girl has the power to go

  • forward in her life

  • and she's not only a mother

  • not only a sister

  • she's not only a wife but a girl

  • she should have an identity

  • she should be recognised

  • she has equal rights as a boy

  • even though my brother thinks that they are treated um... that I am treated very well

  • and they are not treated very well but that is fine if it comes to that

  • that's fine

  • Well I would like to share with you how I found out about

  • the Nobel Peace Prize

  • and it is quite exciting because I was in my chemistry

  • class

  • and we were studying about electrolysis anode

  • cathode

  • and the time was I think 10.15 so the time of

  • announcement of the Nobel Peace Prize was gone

  • and before that I was not expecting that I would get this

  • award

  • and when it went to 10.15 I was totally sure that I haven't

  • won it

  • but then suddenly one of my teachers came to the class

  • and she called me and she said I have something

  • important

  • to tell you and I was totally surprised when she told me

  • that "Congratulations you have won the Nobel Peace Prize"

  • and you are sharing it with a great person who is also

  • working for children's rights"

  • and it is sometimes it is quite difficult to express your

  • feelings

  • but I felt really honoured

  • um, I felt more powerful and more courageous because

  • this award is not just a piece of metal or a medal that you

  • would wear or an

  • award you

  • would keep in your room

  • this is really encouragement for me

  • to go forward and to believe

  • in myself to know that there are people

  • who are supporting me

  • in this campaign

  • and we are standing together we all want to

  • make sure that every child gets quality education

  • so this is really something great for me

  • However when I found that I have won the Nobel Peace

  • Prize

  • I decided that I would not leave my school rather I would

  • finish my school time

  • I went to the Physics lesson and I learnt and I went to the

  • English lesson

  • and it was totally like.. I considered it as a normal day

  • and I was really happy with by the responses of my teachers and

  • my fellow students

  • They were all saying that we are proud of you and I am really

  • thankful to my school to my teachers to my school fellows

  • for their love for their support they are

  • really enrouraging me and supporting me

  • so I am really happy

  • even though it is not going to help me in my test and exams

  • because it totally depends on my hard work but still I am

  • really happy that they are supporting me

  • I have received this award, but this is not the end

  • this is not the end this is not the end of this campaign

  • which I have started I think this is really the beginning

  • and I want to see every child going to school there are

  • still 57 million children who have not received education,

  • who are still out of the primary schools and I want to see

  • every child going to school and getting

  • education because I have myself suffered

  • through the same situation when I was in Swat Valley and

  • you all may know that in Swat there was Talibanization

  • and because of that no girl was allowed to go to school

  • at that time I stood up for my rights and I said I would

  • speak up I do not wait for someone else I do not wait for

  • someone else I had really two options one was not to

  • speak and wait to be killed and the second was to speak

  • up and then be killed and I

  • chose the second one because at that time there was

  • terrorism, women were not allowed to go outside of their

  • houses because education was totally banned, people

  • were killed at that time I needed to raise my voice

  • because I wanted to go back to school I was also one of

  • those girls who could not get education

  • I wanted to learn and be who I

  • can be in my future and I also had dreams I also had

  • dreams like a normal child has

  • I wanted to become a doctor at that time now I want to

  • become a politician, a good politician and when I heard

  • that I cannot go to school, I just for a second thought that

  • I would never able become a doctor or I would never be

  • able to be who I want to be in the future and my life would

  • be just getting married at the age of 13 or 14, not going to

  • school, not becoming who I really can be so I decided

  • that I will speak up.

  • So through my story I want to tell other children all around

  • the world that they should stand up for their rights they

  • should not wait for someone else and their voices are

  • more powerful their voices it would seem that they are

  • weak, but at the time when no one speak, your voice gets

  • so loud that everyone has to listen to it everyone has to

  • hear it so it’s my message to children all around the

  • world that they should stand up for their rights

  • and the award that I have received Nobel Peace

  • Prize I believe that the Nobel Committee, they

  • haven’t given this just to me but this award is for all

  • those children who are voiceless, whose voices need to

  • be heard and I speak for them and I stand up with them

  • and I join them in their campaign, that their voices should

  • be heard and they should be listened and they have

  • rights they have rights they have the right to receive

  • quality education they have the right not to suffer from

  • child labor, not to suffer from child trafficking they have

  • the right to live a happy life so I stand up with all

  • those children and this award is especially for them it

  • gives them courage.

  • At the end I would like to share with you that I had a

  • phone call with Honorable Kailash I cannot pronounce his

  • surname accurately so please I just ask for forgiveness

  • for that I will just call him Kailash if he wouldn’t mind so I

  • had a phone call with him right now and we both talked

  • about how important it is that every child goes to school

  • and every child gets quality education and how many

  • issues are there that the children are suffering but I’m not

  • yet highlighted so we both decide that

  • we will work together for the cause that every child gets

  • quality education and do not suffer from these issues

  • other than that, we also decided that as he’s from India

  • and I’m from Pakistan we will try to build strong

  • relationships between India and Pakistan and nowadays

  • you know that there is tension on the border and the

  • situation is getting ....it’s not like as we are expecting,

  • we want Pakistan and India to have good relationships

  • and the tension that is going on is really disappointing and I’m

  • really sad because I want both the countries to have

  • dialogue, to have talks about peace and to think

  • about progress to think about development rather than

  • fighting with each other It’s important that both countries

  • focus more on education focus more on development

  • and progress which is good for both of them

  • so we both decided that I requested him that would

  • it be possible that he request His Honorable Prime

  • Minister Narendra Modi to join us when we receive the

  • Nobel Peace Prize in December and I promised him that

  • I would also request the Honorable Prime Minister of

  • Pakistan Nawaz Sharif to join us when I get and he gets

  • the Nobel Peace Prize and I myself request the

  • Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Honorable

  • Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that they both join us when

  • we receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

  • I really believe in peace

  • I really believe in tolerance and

  • patience and it is very important for the progress of both

  • countries that they have peace and they have good

  • relationships this is how they are going to achieve

  • success and this is how they are going

  • to progress

  • So it is my humble request and I hope it will be

  • will be listened.

  • at the end I want to say that I’m really happy for your

  • support.

  • I used to say that I think I do not deserve the Nobel

  • Peace Prize I still believe that but I believe that it is not

  • only an award for what I have done but also an

  • encouragement for giving me hope for giving me the

  • courage to go and continue this campaign to believe in

  • myself and to know that I’m not alone there are hundreds

  • and thousands and millions who are supporting me

  • so once again thank you so much to all of you

  • Thank you.
