Malala is runner up as Time declares Obama Person of the Year

“Even as she quietly recovers, her story has lit a fire,” says Time magazine while declaring 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai as runner up on its list which declared US President Barack Obama as Person of the Year. The magazine says Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where Malala is getting treatment for the bullet injuries from the Taliban attack in October, has been flooded with gifts and cards from all over the world and donations now totalling $13,700. “Malala also now has numerous powerful supporters, including a group of well-connected people like Megan Smith, a vice president at Google, and Mark Kelly, an astronaut and the husband of former Congresswoman and shooting survivor Gabby Giffords, who have helped established the Malala Fund, which will offer grants to organizations and individuals working in education. The plan is for Malala, when she’s better, to sit on the board along with her father and make decisions about who should receive the grants.”
