Associated Press | BBC
In a video published Monday, Malala Yousafzai says, “I’m getting better day by day.” Taliban gunmen shot Yousafzai last October in her hometown of Mingora, Pakistan. Malala, who is 15, blogged for the BBC about education for girls. “I want to serve the people; I want every girl, every child to be educated,” she reiterates in the video. She is recuperating in the United Kingdom.

The video was made Jan. 22, the Associated Press reports. After she delivers her message in several languages, the video shows Malala looking at cards and emails from supporters.
