Malala visits Pakistan for the first time since 2012 Taliban attack

"And I think that it's my old home again ... so it is actually happening, and I am grateful to all of you". She remained in the country after undergoing medical treatment there and started studying at the University of Oxford past year.
"I have noted that the girls in Swat and elsewhere in Pakistan see Malala as their own and believe that whatever she is doing is meant for them", he said.
She praised the doctors in Pakistan and United Kingdom for saving her life, while lamenting that due to security concerns and injuries, she was forced to stay overseas for such a long period of time.
In an emotional speech broadcast live by television stations, Malala said she had dreamed of returning to Pakistan and setting foot on her native soil.
The Oxford University student arrived in Islamabad accompanied by her parents. Local television showed her with family members in the lounge at the airport before leaving in a convoy of almost 15 vehicles, mostly occupied by heavily armed police officials.
Yousafzai may visit her childhood home in Swat Valley if security threats don't prevent her from traveling.
Pakistanis awakening to the news she was back in the nation flooded social media with messages of welcome, with many hailing her bravery - but others accusing her of a conspiracy to foment dissent.
Cricketer-turned opposition leader Imran Khan's party said Thursday that Malala'sreturn was a sign of the defeat of extremism in the country.
"The terrorists thought that they would change my aims and stop my ambitions", she said, "but nothing changed in my life, except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. You are no more an ordinary citizen and your security is now also our duty", Abbasi said.
She said, "I always dreamed that someday I would return to Pakistan without fearing anything".
"I wish I could see her in Swat".
Malala returned Pakistan by a foreign airlines flight after her six-year stay overseas.
"So glad she's back home where she belongs". Memon said it was a proud day for Pakistan that Yousafzai was back in Pakistan.
When she was a teenager, Yousafzai was critically hurt after being shot at point-blank range in October 2012 by Taliban gunmen as she returned home from school. Two of her classmates also were wounded.
After surviving the attack, Yousafzai was airlifted overseas and underwent surgery. She was on her way home in a school van with other girls after taking an exam when the TTP men opened fire on them.
At age 17, Malala became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for her education advocacy. She was first flown to Peshawar, where she was placed in a medically induced coma, and then moved in a medical evacuation to the British city of Birmingham, where doctors battled for three days to save her life. "The world has given her respect, Pakistan will as well". Yousafzai has repeatedly responded to the criticism with a grace far outstripping her years, often saying that education is not just for those in the West. If it was my choice, I wouldn't have left my country at all.
"On this day, I cherish fond memories of home, of playing cricket on rooftops and singing the national anthem in school".
But it was only after the shooting, and Malala's subsequent near-miraculous recovery in a British hospital, that she became a truly global figure.

Despite the stronger growth, lower unemployment rate and higher interest rate forecast, the inflation projection was the same. That number could grow if the USA economy expands as fast and the unemployment rate falls as low as the Fed now predicts.
But alas, she didn't get access for a day to the airline lounge. "I am going to go INSANE at Pizza Hut", she tweeted. Nothing is more frustrating than getting bumped off a flight-but a massive travel voucher may ease the pain.
