Yes of course I'm a fan of Malala. Her work is amazing and it's truely inspiring that she is so young but still is able to make such a big change. She reallly shows that your age doesn't have to be a limitation.
She defiantly deserves the nobel prize. Because of her strenght, dedicaton and will. Even though someone even tried to kill her, she didn't stop her campaign.

I do not feeel that i know enough about Malala to call myself a fan of her but I think she has done an amazing job. I admire all the stuff that she does and all the time she puts in her campaign. I think that everything she´s doing demands a lot of courage, to stand up against injustice in her county and in the hole world, and I admire that. I also think she is a extremly inspiring person and her job for children´s rights is incredible. I think Malala deserve this award if not even more. All the things she done
to this world is extremly noble.

I am a "fan" of Malala and i think the work she is doing with children especially girls right to education is outstanding. She has been through so much while working with this in her countries that is very strict on how it should be. She has been shot in the forehead but she is still going strong and haven't stopped her work because of that. she is a very strong person ans she is not afraid to say what she thinks. She absolutely deserves the Nobel prize for all her hard work and all the pain she has gone through.

I am a fan of Malala because I think that what she's doing is really incredible. To stand up for human rights is something I belive everyone should do although the fact that Malala got shot in the head and suffered a teriible injury makes it even more impressive seeing that she intends to continue with her campaign. She most definitely deserves the Nobel peace price since she did something to encourage the right for education for everyone.

You could say that I’m a fan of Malala, depending on how you define the word fan. I think that the word fan is in a way too narrow in order to describe mine and peoples relation to her. She is more like a role model and encouraging people to not give up, giving hope to people all over the world. No matter what you are going through it’s normally not as bad as what Malala has been going through. She has put women rights and children’s rights to education on the world agenda which are two very important topics. I think that she definitely deserves this Nobel peace prize, for all the effort she’s put into highlighting and campaigning for the rights for women and children.

Yes, I am a fan of Malala. She is certainly doing some extraordinary work, especially for her age. There is no doubt in my mind that she deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. Far too few people bring up the amounts of children, especially young girls, who do not have the privelage to go to school. Great job, Malala!

Yes, I am a fan of Malala! She is so strong and brave, and although she has been through so much, she just keeps going! I do not know so much about her, but I know enough to be very impressed by her age and bravery, and by how she gets people to listen. She deserved this award, not only because of what she have done for women and children, but also because of her way to show that anyone can make a difference if they only stand up for themselfes and for others.

Yes! I am a fan of Malala. She is such a big inspiration and has motivating goal. She fought for what she believed in and kept her self motivated to reach her goal. I think that she is worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize. She is brave and an inspiring role model. She never gave up even though she came across so many obstacles and she fought to overcome them.

I like Malala because she has fought for what she believed in, and now her goal is achieved. It shows that if you really want something you must fight for it, because you can achieve it if you really want to. Because of that she definitely deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

Yes, in my opinion she totally deserves the peace prize because she has fought hard for girls rights to go to school and it is important that she keeps doing what she is doing.
I don't say this because i am a huge fan of her. I just say it because she is doing the right thing and is fighting for the girls rights to get education.

I'm necessarily not a fan of hers but I am impressed of how she has fought for girls rights to go to school and how she keeps fighting to this day. I think she has inspired many girls in not only her country but also in other countries because of her actions. She absolutely deserved the Peace Prize.

I am a fan of Malala, she seems like a vary nice person and is very motivated. I respect her because she has experienced a lot of horrible thing and she has learned to use those experiences for something good. I bet that she motivates a lot of people (especially because that she is so young and she has a story to tell).

I never really had read much about Malala before she had gotten the Nobel Peace Prize. So when she did, I decided to do some research, and ever since then, I am proud to say that I definitely am a fan of hers! She inspires me so much, and the fact that she is so brave is very, very inspiring. When I read that she had been shot in the head AND the throat by the talibans when she wouldn't accept the talibans interdiction for girls to go to school, I was chocked. And the fact that she only was 15 when this happened is frightening, but she survived. And I can not understand anyone who claims that she doesn't deserve to win this award.

I would with certanity say that I am fan of Malala, and I definately think that she deserves the Nobel Prize. She is such an inspiring person, and she is fighting for a very important. At the age of eighteen she has been through more than most adults, but she does not let it scare her off, instead it motivates her to keep fighting. Malala is a hero, and she deserves to have her voice Heard.

I would not consider myself a fan of Malala, though I still admire her very much. She is such a brave and independent woman, she should be a role model for everyone. Even though she has been through so much, she's still fighting for what she stands for.
Because she fights and stands for such important things as children rights, I really think she is worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.

We need more people like Malala, because there's so many things that are wrong with our world. Someone from our generation had to take the first step in changing the world for the better. And Malala did.

Are you a fan of Malala? Do you think she deserves the Nobel Peace Prize?
I wouldn't say I'm a fan of Malala but I do admire her work and believes her efforts for these girls are amazing. And I really do think she deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, and from my point of view it was a quite clever move from the nobel prize committe to name her one of the award winners. Since she's already pretty famous more people will take notice of her, and her age inspires even younger people. Of course it helps her a lot with spreading her message.

I am a fan of Malala, and I am so happy she received this award. I think she really deserves it, and we have to make more people aware of how many children (mostly girls) are denied education every year. It's amazing that she is the face for this campaign.

I am not exactly an active fan of Malala, since I have not really payed that much attention to the news and the media, but her work inspires me a lot. What inspires me the most is that although she was shot in the head because of her activism, she kept fighting for children's right to a proper education.

Despite the threat, her willpower remained strong, and this is why I definitely think that she deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. As she is such a young woman herself, giving her acts more attention influences young girls to fight for their rights for education as well.

I think Malala deserves the Nobel peace price. Malala was almost killed because of her opinions but luckily survived. I don't know that much about Malala but I guess that I am a fan and I think it's really impressive that she doesn't stop fighting for what she believes in when it almost got her killed.

I wouldn't necessarily say I'm a fan of Malala, but I do think that she is an incredible young women that has archived a lot for her young age. So I could definitely see myself becoming a "fan" of hers, but I would have to learn more about her first. I do believe that she deserves the novel price. Not many people, and certainly not that young, would have the courage to stand by their opinion as fiercely as she does. It's very admirable.

I wouldn't really say that I'm a fan, to be honest I haven't even bothered to look her up a single time after I heard about her. This is simply because I'm lazy and not because I don't think it's a worthy cause; I really do think it is.

Even though I haven't been following her in any sort of way this does make me feel a little better about the world. Seeing that someone is actually making /concrete/ changes about these issues comforts me. Yes, I really do think she deserves this reward.

Even though I have do admit that i do not know much about Malala since I didn't really pay attention to the news when she first got recognized in the media, I do admire her work from what I know about it.

I think it's great that someone is standing up for, not only women but young women and young people as well, as it is important to educate and support todays youth because todays youth will be tomorrows adults and their competence is crucial for building up good societys and preserving/improving the world.

Which means that I would not call myself a fan as I don't know enough to define myself as such, but I do think she deserves the nobel peace price and all the success she has had. :)

I think that what Malala has done is purely amazing, she really deserves to win the nobel price. Considering she's only 17 years old what she has done must be very good. She's really a symbol for young people who also want to make a difference in the world.
