"We must not be afraid of anything. We must not be afraid of anything!" Yousafzai said. "I believe that a gun has no power at all. Because a gun can only take life. But a pen can save lives."

He declined to comment on whether she had been considered for this year's award.

But within minutes, one Taliban gunman stopped the vehicle while another climbed aboard and shot her in the head. The reason: She was an outspoken advocate for girls' education.

"My world has changed so much," the 16-year-old, whose new memoir I Am Malala was published Tuesday, tells PEOPLE. "But I have not."
