Malala is 18 years today

 Malala Yousafzai clocks 18 years today July 12th and the Nobel Laureate marked her birthday in Lebanon, opening the Malala Fund's "Malala Yousafzai All-Girls School" near the Syrian border, which will provide quality secondary education to over 200 Syrian girls residing in informal camps and out of school.
In her speech ,she said; 
"I am honored to mark my 18th birthday with the brave and inspiring girls of Syria. I am here on behalf of the 28 million children who are kept from the classroom because of armed conflict. Their courage and dedication to continue their schooling in difficult conditions inspires people around the world and it is our duty to stand by them," Malala said. "On this day, I have a message for the leaders of this country, this region and the world – you are failing the Syrian people, especially Syria's children. This is a heartbreaking tragedy – the world's worst refugee crisis in decades."
Happy Birthday Malala..Here's wishing you many more good years to come.
