Her name is Malala Yousafzai – she wrote a blog under the pen name Gul Makai so people would not know she was a girl – she wanted to change her name to Gul Makai because she says her real name means grief stricken – now many grieve for her as 14-year-old Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban – her crime – getting an education.
