Don\'t want to be known as the girl shot by Taliban: Malala

New York:14 Jul 2013

Pledging to devote her life for education of girls, Pakistani teen activist Malala Yousafzai has said she does not want to be known as the girl -- the Taliban tried to kill but as -- \"the girl who struggled for her rights.\"

Malala invokes Gandhiji in her UN speech

\"The attack on October 9 was just a part of my life. I want to work hard; I want to sacrifice my whole life for the education of girls,\" Malala said, addressing Pakistan\'s UN Mission in New York said.

\"And to be true, I want to say that I don\'t want to be the girl who was shot by the Taliban, I want to be the girl who struggled for her rights,\" she said.

She made the remarks, a day after giving a widely acclaimed speech at the UN. The UN appearance was Malala\'s first public speech since the Taliban targeted her in an attack and shot her last October in a bid to end her campaign to get girls into schools.
