It's no secret that Pakistani activist and youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Malala Yousafzai, is passionate about fighting for women and children's rights. Not even a gunshot to the head could stop her from pushing for girls to have the right to receive an education.

Just recently, Malala became an honorary Canadian citizen, the sixth and the youngest ever to receive such honor. In her speech to Canada's parliament, we saw a different side of Malala, especially when she talked about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "He does yoga, has tattoos...and a lot more," she said in her speech. She also shared that a lot of people told her to let them know what the PM looks like in reality.

Malala also included a message for young Canadians saying, "you don't have to be as old as the very young Prime Minister Trudeau to be a leader," which the PM nodded to in agreement.

Malala ended her speech with an inspiring and heartwarming message to the people of Canada saying, "I pray that you continue to open your homes and your hearts to the world's most defenseless children and families, and I hope your neighbors will follow your example."

Watch some parts of her speech in the video below.
