Watch Nel's interview with Shazia

Shazia Ramzan, a friend of Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban, is fighting for girls' rights to education.

Malala was shot in October because she campaigned for the rights of girls to go to school, something that's not always allowed for girls in her home country of Pakistan.

Fifteen-year-old Shazia was also shot that day.

She says that girls there are still terrified of speaking out.

Like Malala, Shazia's now come to the UK, and she's been chatting to Nel about her experiences and her hopes for girls' education.
