Malala speaks about education rights for girls at local Denver school

DENVER (AP) - Not often do you get to meet the person you might be studying about in history class.

But that is what happened at Denver South High School as students were surprised by a visit from the youngest person to ever win a Nobel Prize, Malala Yousafzai.

Students at South High School thought they were just at another assembly, talking about the refugee population and their struggles when they were surprised by Malala’s visit.

At 19-years-old she is not much older than the students there.

Malala and her father want students to believe in themselves.

She was visiting with her non-profit, The Malala Foundation, and went to the school because of its diverse population.

She received the Nobel Prize Laureate for her fight against the Taliban, that girls have a right to go to school .
