Malala Yousafzai spoke publicly for the first time since being attacked by the Taliban last October to thank her many supporters across the world for their good wishes.
In a message recorded before her most recent operation on Saturday, she said she will continue her work fighting for the education rights of girls. She said:
"Today you can see that I am alive. I can speak, I can see you, I can see everyone and…I am getting better day by day. It’s just because of the prayers of people."
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
Doctors have said they plan to carry out two procedures to reinforce Malala Yousafzai's skull and to restore hearing to her left ear.
