(USA Today) – Malala Yousafzai said Friday she is honored to share the 95th Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi.

“We should all consider each other as human beings, and we should respect each other,” said Malala, who was in chemistry class when she found out about the award. “It is my message to children all around the world that they should stand up for their rights.”

The Norwegian Nobel Committee cited the two “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”

Yousafzai, 17, the youngest Nobel winner, is from Pakistan, and Satyarthi, 60, is from India — adding significance to the award, given the tumultuous history between those two nations.
