  • between Pakistan and India and between different religions and we both

  • support each other. it does not matter what's the color of your skin

  • and what language do you speak. what religion do you believe in

  • it is that we should all consider each other as human beings and we should

  • respect

  • each other and we should all fight for our rights

  • for the rights of children, for the rights of women and for the rights of every

  • human being

  • most of all I would like to thank my family

  • my dear father, my dear mother. for their love for their support

  • as my father always say he didnt give me something extra

  • what he did that, he did not clip my wings

  • so I'm thankful to my father for not clipping my wings,

  • for letting me to fly and achieve my goal

  • a girl is not supposed to be the the slave

  • a girl has the power to go forward in her life. and she's not only a mother

  • and she isn't only a sister. she's not only a wife

  • but a girl has the... she should have an identity she should be

  • recognized and she had equal rights as a boy

  • even though my brothers think they are treated

  • that I'm treated very well and they're not treated very well

  • but that's fine if it comes

  • if that's it. but that's fine and

  • well I would like to share with you how I found about the Nobel Peace Prize then

  • and it's quite exciting because

  • I was in my chemistry class and we were starting a lot and actually see it

  • ...

  • at the time was i thinkin 10:15 so the time of the announcement of the Nobel Peace

  • Prize was gone

  • and before that i was not expecting that I'll get this award

  • and I'll when it went to like 10:15

  • i was totally sure that I haven't won it but then suddenly one of my teacher came into the

  • class and

  • she called me. 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's sometimes quite difficult to express your feelings but I felt

  • really honored, i felt more powerful and more courageous

  • because this award is not just a piece of metal or a medal that you will wear or an

  • award that would keep in your room but

  • this is really an 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 and we all

  • want to make sure that every child gets quality education

  • so this really. this is really something

  • something great for me. however,

  • when I found out that I have won the Nobel Peace Prize

  • I decided that I would not leave my school

  • rather I'd finish my school time. I went to the physics lesson

  • I learned. I went in the English lesson and it was totally like a

  • I considered it as a normal day. and I was really happy by the response of my teachers then

  • 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 and

  • really encourage me in there supporting me so I'm really happy

  • even though it's not going to help me in my test in exams because it

  • totally depends on my hard work

  • but still I'm really happy. that they are supporting me

  • I've got. I've received this award

  • but 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 fifty 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 the same situation when I was in Swat valley

  • and you all may know that

  • In Swat there was Talibanisation and because of them nobody was allowed to

  • go to school

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

  • I did not wait for someone else. I did not wait for someone else

  • I had really 2 options. one was

  • not to speak and wait to be killed second was and the second was

  • to speak up and then be killed and i choose the second one

  • because at that time there was terrorism women were not allowed to go outside

  • of their houses cause 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 couldn't

  • not get education

  • I wanted to learn

  • I wanted to learn and be who I can be my future

  • and 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 can't go to school. I just..for a second thought that I will

  • never be able to become

  • a doctor. and I will never able to be

  • who I want to be in future. and my life will 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. through my story

  • I want to tell other children all around the world that they should stand up for their

  • rights

  • they should not break for someone else and their voices

  • are more powerful their voices it would seem

  • they are weak but at the time when no one speak your voice gets so loud and

  • 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

  • the Nobel Peace Prize. I believe that the Nobel Committee

  • they haven't given it just to me but this award is for all those children

  • who are voiceless whose voices need to be hard

  • 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 the right to receive 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'd like to share with you that I had a phone call

  • with honorable Kailash I can't pronounce

  • his surname like accurately so I'm

  • so please I just ask for forgiveness. I'll just call him Kailash

  • if he wouldn't mind. so I had a phone call with him right now

  • and we both talked that how important it is that every child goes to

  • school in every child gets quality education

  • and how many issues are there that the children are suffering but are not yet

  • highlighted

  • so we both decided that we will walk together

  • for this goal. that every child get quality education

  • and do not suffer from these issues other than that

  • we also decided as he's from India and I am from Pakistan

  • we'll try to build strong relationships between India and Pakistan

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

  • 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 am 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 the 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 here when we receive the Nobel Peace Prize in December

  • and I promised that I will also request the honorable Prime Minister of

  • Pakistan

  • Nawaz Sherif to join us when I and he get the Nobel Peace Prize

  • and I myself request the honorable

  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the honorable prime minister Nawaz Sherif

  • 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 to. they're going to progress. so it's my humble request and I

  • hope it will be

  • heard it 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've done but it is also 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.

In the name of God the most merciful
