UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday designated 19-year-old Malala Yousafzai from Pakistan as the UN's youngest Messenger of Peace.
Nobel Peace laureate Malala Yousafzai became only the sixth person to receive honorary Canadian citizenship on Wednesday (April 12), before advocating in a speech to parliament for women and girls' education - a cause dear to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
This time around too, Malala, now 19, is the youngest ever messenger of peace, and the first Pakistani designated as such. That attack only strengthened her resolve and as media coverage spread of the cowardly attack, her recovery and her ongoing campaign she soon became an worldwide symbol and champion for girls' education.
Of her emergence as the leading campaigner for girls" education, she said: "It wasn't that I was very intelligent or very clever or I had some special kind of training or something.

"People should look at me and the Muslims who are living in peace and believe in peace rather than looking at the few terrorists", Malala said.
"I am still in shock that I actually met her", Patterson said.
Yousafazi went on to say that brothers and fathers must also support women and girls in the global effort to ensure education for all and, more importantly, to "be who they want to be". The feminist icon and girls' education activist became the youngest person to be awarded the United Nations' Messenger of Peace Award.
Malala Yousafzai: I've been fighting for girls' education since I was 10 or 11, when in Swat Valley, in Pakistan, terrorism started and girls couldn't go to school. What can men and boys do to ensure that girls and women get an education?
"I am pleased to announce Malala Yousafzai's upcoming visit to Canada". Rona Ambrose, then a Conservative MP and now the interim party leader, invited Ms. Yousafzai to Toronto in 2014 to mark the International Day of the Girl, an event now on the United Nations' annual calendar thanks to Ms. Ambrose's work as status of women minister in 2011.
Malala paid tribute to her father, who attended the ceremony, and said unlike many fathers he never stopped her. Many are forced to marry early or must work or care for younger siblings, denying them their right to education.
She now lives in Britain, where she received medical treatment after she was shot.
Yousafzai joins the ranks of other U.N. Messengers of Peace, including actors Michael Douglas (disarmament) and Leonardo DiCaprio (climate change), and musician Stevie Wonder (persons with disabilities).
