Malala Yousufzal

Malala Yousufzal speaks for the first time since being shot by the Taliban in the head for promoting womens’ education.

Telegraph reports that the 15-year-old underwent surgery this past weekend when surgeons attached a titanium plate in her head to bridge a gap in her shattered skull.

In a very eloquent video she says:

“Today you can see that I’m alive. I can speak. I can see you…I’m getting better day by day…because all the people, men women and children have prayed for me…God has given me a second life and I want to serve the people.”

This video will probably be the most heartwarming thing you’ll see today.

Malala Yousufzal was also TIME’s runner up for Person of the Year.
