Malala Yousafzai: Her Brave Recovery
Three Months After the Taliban Tried to Take Her Life, the Pakistani Teen Crusader Leaves a U.K. Hospital to the Cheers of Millions Worldwide-and Vows to Return Home Soon
And a testament to the resilience of one brave girl. Nearly assassinated Oct. 9 by a Taliban gunman for her passionate championing of girls' education in Pakistan, the outspoken former BBC blogger, 15, became a global heroine, earning accolades from government leaders and calls for a Nobel Peace Prize. On Jan. 3, after recovering from a bullet that pierced the left side of her head and required the replacement of part of her skull with a titanium plate, she waved as she was discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, to await further reconstructive surgery at her family's temporary home nearby. While the effects on her cognitive ability remain unclear, "Malala is a strong young woman and has worked hard ... to make excellent progress," says the hospital's medical director Dr. Dave Rosser. Those close to her say that strength hasn't wavered: The top-scoring pupil recently vowed to a teacher to return to Mingora. When she does, adds student Shazia Ramzan, 13, she'll get a hero's welcome. "We could never have hoped," says Ramzan, "things would turn out like this."
