    Two young, feminist role models, famous for very different reasons, sat down for an earnest interview about changing the world last week, which should be enough to boost your faith in humanity for a while.

    Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai was interviewed by actress Emma Watson about the new documentary, “He Named Me Malala.” As you probably know, Malala became famous worldwide after she was shot by a Taliban gunman for advocating for education for young women.

    She's continued to fight for girls' rights, and became the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17.

    In the interview, Malala discusses her goal of making education accessible to all children:

    “I want to see every child to get a quality education, and in order to make sure that dream comes true, we have to work hard and we have to take action. That’s why, through the Malala Fund, we are working each and every day. And now the sustainable development goals are going to be set up, so we are raising our voice saying not just primary education should be focused on, but both primary and secondary education should be available to every child.”

    She also says that she hopes to see a woman president in the US, and urges young people to take action and believe that they're capable of making change happen.
