#Ambitions: I want to be Prime Minister of Pakistan - Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai

Teenage Pakistani education rights activist Malala Yousafzai says she wants to become the Prime Minister of her country.

Yousafzai, 17, will become the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize when she is officially made a laureate later today in the Norwegian capital Oslo.

Speaking to the BBC ahead of the ceremony, Malala said she wants to continue working for the betterment of her people. 

“I want to serve my country and my dream is that my country becomes a developed country and I see every child get an education,” Malala said.

“If I can serve my country best through politics and through becoming a prime minister then I would definitely choose that,” she added.

Malala was 15 when a Taliban gunman shot her in the head as she travelled on a school bus in response to her campaign for girls’ education.

Her injuries nearly killed her before she was flown to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham to undergo life-saving surgery. 

She continues to live in the city with her family.

“Now this peace prize is very important for me and it has really given me more hope, more courage, and I feel stronger than before because I see many people are with me,” she said.

“There are more responsibilities but I have also put responsibilities on myself.  I feel I am answerable to God and to myself and that I should help my community. It’s my duty,” the teenage activist added.

In a stark reminder of the horrific ordeal she had to endure, an exhibition in Oslo will feature the blood splattered school uniform that Malala was wearing at the time she was attacked. 

The teenager will share this year’s $1.1 million Nobel Peace Prize with Indian children’s rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi. 

Speaking about her co-recipient Malala said it was an honour to share the prize with Mr Satyarthi.  win the prize alongside the Indian child rights activist.

Entertainment at the event will be provided by Malala’s countryman, the legendary Qawwali singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

Malala has also invited five other teenage activists from around the world to join her in Oslo, including Pakistani schoolgirls Shazia Ramzan and Kainat Riaz both of whom were injured in the Taliban attack on Malala; 17-year-old Nigerian campaigner Amina Yusuf.
