Rookie Mag Sends Get-Well Wishes to Recovering Malala

by Kaitlin Cole


Malala Yousafzai, the brave young activist from Pakistan who was shot by the Taliban, is doing well. She’s currently recovering at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England.  Dr. David Rosser, the medical director at the hospital, stated that Malala is communicating freely and writing, and said that Malala wanted information about her condition to be made public. She can’t currently speak due to a tracheotomy tube, but should be able to within the next few days.

Malala will need surgery to restructure her skull and Dr. Rosser says she is showing signs of infection from the bullet track, so she’s not completely in the clear yet, unfortunately. 

In the meantime, Rookie MagBUST cover girl Tavi Gevinson’s online magazine for teenage girls, has compiled a bunch of sweet get-well notes for Malala from their readers.
