July 12, 2013 is the 16th birthday of Malala Yousafzai, the courageous advocate for universal education and girls’ rights. Malala will be marking the day with a “Super Sweet 16” of epic proportions as she takes the floor of the United Nations in New York to give her first public speech since being shot in the head on her way to school by the Taliban less than a year ago. Her profound purpose: to deliver a set of education demands written by youth, for youth, to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
