Malala was born in the Swat District of Pakistan, on 12 July 1997, into a family from the lower middle class.

She is the eldest child of the family, and she has two younger brothers by the names of Atal and Khushal.
At the time of her birth, her parents had no money, and as a result, she was born at home. Her name Malala means “grief-stricken,” and she was named after a famous warrior woman from southern Afghanistan who was a poet.
For her education, her father, who was a school owner and an educational activist, mostly educated her at home. She could go to sit for examinations at Pakistan’s Swat Valley, and in October 2012, there was an attempt to kill her, and that is when the family relocated to the United Kingdom. She went to Edgbaston High School from 2013 to 2017. From 2017 she joined Oxford, where she studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.
Malala is still very single and fully enjoying her life. There has never been any information on her love life as she seems fully committed to her activism and also her advocacy for the education of women and children as well.

Malala started speaking of education rights in 2008 when she was taken by her father to Peshawar, where she addressed a local press club. The following year she began training and eventually became a peer educator at a Pakistan youth program.
She became a blogger for BBC anonymously in late 2008. The blog was on the life of a schoolgirl in Swat under the influence of the Taliban. Her blog was published under the name Gul Makai. In January 2009, the Taliban said that girls should not go to school, and after a few days, they destroyed several schools. Girls’ schools were re-opened in March of the same year, but only a few pupils reported back. Malala’s blog ended in March 2009.
After the blog, she held several interviews in radio and newspaper, and her blog identity was revealed to the public, and she began on the television and publicly advocated for female education. She received several awards and prizes for her work, and she even planned to start a foundation.
As she became more recognized, her life was being put in danger, and she received several death threats. The Taliban spokesman even went ahead to say that they had an agreement to kill her. There was an attempt to kill her on 9 October 2012 when she was only 15, as she was riding home on a bus, and a masked gunman shot her through the neck, and the bullet landed on her shoulder.
She was first treated in a military hospital, and later she was taken to the United Kingdom for further treatment. She was discharged on 3 January 2013, and she resided in West Midlands together with her family.
After the attack, there was worldwide media coverage, with several people expressing their anger as well as sympathy. Several protests were held in different cities in Pakistan, and more than 2 million people signed the Right to Education petition.
After her recovery, she continued with her activism, and she spoke in several international forums and also in institutions.
