A Nobel Peace Prize Winner’s Thoughts on Fear

Bravery is a hard thing to muster in the face of fear, but that’s why the story of Malala Yousafzai is so inspiring. By age 11, Yousafzai was speaking out against the Taliban rule in her homeland of Pakistan. For years she demanded an education for all children, regardless of race, gender or religion, and in 2012 her bravery was answered with a gunman’s bullet to her head. 

Yousafzai has since recovered, won the Nobel Peace Prize, and has maintained her signature bravery, despite “feeling fear all the time,” she says in this video.

“I think life is always dangerous,” she says. “Some people get afraid of it, some people don’t go forward. But some people, if they want to achieve their goal, they have to go.”

We chose Malala Yousafzai as one of our 2014 SUCCESS Achiever of the Year runners-up. Find out who else achieved great things in 2014.
