UPDATE: Malala Walks, Reunites with Family

We’re happy to report that Pakistani teen activist Malala Yousafzai is not expected to have significant brain damage following an assassination attempt by the Taliban.

Malala has been undergoing treatment at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England for the last two weeks. According to University Hospitals Birmingham medical director Dr. Dave Rosser, is able to walk nearly unassisted and “appears to have very good memories of both the last few days of her care and events prior to the incident.”

Malala’s family was finally able to reunite with their injured daughter on Thursday. Her father, education activist Ziauddin Yousafzai, tearfully described Malala’s recovery as a “miracle.”

He also added that Malala asked for her family to bring her school books to her hospital bed—she’s already preparing for her final exams.

Stay tuned for more information on this amazing teen’s recovery.
