The Pakstani girl who was almost killed by Islamic terrorists is speaking out for the first time since the attack on her life.
A Taliban gunman shot 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai at point blank range after she advocated giving girls access to education.
Yousafzai is recovering in a U.K. hospital after undergoing surgeries to repair her skull and restore her hearing.
The shooting sparked outrage in Pakistan and many other countries. Thousands sent letters and prayers to this young girl who became a symbol of hope.
Yousafzai's family has started a fund in support of girls education. In a video statement from her hospital, Malala Yousafzai said she is getting better daily.
"Today you can see that I am alive," she said. "I can speak. I can see you. I can see everyone and today I can speak and I am getting better day by day."
"It's just because of the prayers of people, because all people, men, women, children -- all of them have prayed for me," she said.
Last week, Yousafzai was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2013.
