Biden must protect Afghans amid crisis - Malala

In 2009 at age 12, Malala blogged under a pen name for the BBC about living under the rule of the Pakistani Taliban.

In 2012 she survived being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for campaigning against its attempts to deny women education.

She said other countries also had to help to act to protect people in the country.

"Countries need to open their borders to Afghan refugees", the 24-year-old said.

In 2014, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate at age 17. In 2018 she launched Assembly, a digital publication for girls and young women available on Apple News. She graduated from Oxford University in June.
