The 17-year-old Pakistani activist was targeted by the Taliban in 2012, after she voiced support for women’s education. She survived a gunshot to the head and, after recovering, became and advocate for women’s rights and education. This marked her second time appearing on the show.
She also spoke about Davis Guggenheim’s new documentary, He Named Me Malala, and viewers got to see a bit of the trailer. The full trailer debuted exclusively on the Malala Fund’s Facebook page last night. It’s a powerful look at her life and advocacy, but she reinforces that for all her accomplishments, she’s “still a teenager.”
“Who would you have been if you were just an ordinary girl from the Swat Valley?” an interviewer asks her. “I’m still an ordinary girl,” she responds. “But if I had an ordinary father and an ordinary mother, then I would have two children now.”
The film opens in theaters Oct. 2.
