You may have seen online all of the people raising their hands to say, I am malala. And malala's own organization is called the malala fund, helping young girls out of a life with no future into a life of their dreams. Tonight the malala fund is hard at work. Trying to education, empower girls around the world. While malala herself answers the voices who speak against her. It's their right to speak. Now it's my right to speak. It's their right to speak against me. It's their right. But the thing is I only want support for my cause of education, it's the right of every girl and every boy. Reporter: The kind of education you were getting, they argue is a western education. If I want to go to school and become a doctor, there would be an eastern doctor or western doctor, it's a difference in the study? If I want to become an engineer, is there a different way to become an engineer, eastern engineer or western engineer? This is education. It's knowledge. It can neither be eastern or western. Reporter: She surprised us when we asked about those who shot her. The only person arrested was a chemistry student. But he was released right after arrest. Malala says real islam teaches you must forgive. So as of tonight, no one has been arrested or prosecuted for what they did to you. It's not important if they are prosecuted or arrested. Reporter: Isn't it important that the girls in pakistan know, that someone will be prosecuted for doing this? He would have a family. He would have mother. He would have sister. And her mother would love. I'm not a cruel person. I want to fight with them. I want to fight against them through my voice and through my pen and through my book, and through my love, and through my brotherhood, not with guns. Reporter: Are you in any pain any more? No. No. I have no pain. I am very well. I'm recovered now. Totally recovered. The doctors are still working on my physiotherapy and still the left side of my face and thinking about my jaw. But that's just small things. I am recovered. Reporter: Your smile is here. Do you think she'll change the world? I hope so. I think she has the potential to. Reporter: She and her family now live in england, she attends a girls school, loves her studies and her cricket. But still lives on a kind of border between two worlds. Do you believe in covering your head? Yes. This is my culture, my own choice, that I am doing this. It's not been implemented on me. Reporter: I'm thinking of you walking through a mall. It's totally different. We have never seen like women in short dresses. So it's something like new and difficult for my mother. Reporter: Her traditionalist mother who is learning to read. Though she works at western girls and proclaims, I'm going to mispronounce this. Roughly translated, it means shocking. The other thing is that my mother is very worried about the waste of food. In our country, there are so many poor people. We used to give food to those poor people. Now she says, if there is no one, let me give it to the birds. Reporter: Though no one doubts, this is a girl who plans to lead the world. In america, people are waiting for a woman president. I want to be a politician. But I haven't decided what job would I do. Reporter: Try to ask her about family. You find a shy girl from a shy culture. Family, lots of children? Um, I don't know what I would do in the future. I will decide later. Reporter: None of my business. You can say, none of your business. Yeah. Maybe. Reporter: For all her gratitude at her new life, there is a kind of loneliness and longing. Some people say I will never return home. I believe in my heart, that i will. Reporter: She tells us she's been reading a book, the wizard There's no place like home. There's no place like home. I believe it. If you go anywhere, even to the paradise, you will miss your home. And I do miss my home. Reporter: Before she was shot she planted a mango tree behind her house in the swat valley, hoping the mango would grow. I planted it in the middle of the garden, hoping to see a big mango tree and sit under its shade. Reporter: Do you know if it's alive? Do you know if it's growing? I don't know. Reporter: We traveled to swat to her school, where there's a chair waiting with her name on it. And to her house, but we couldn't find the mango tree in her little garden. But in a sense the seed she planted has grown something even more profound. A life ready to answer the question asked by that gunman a year ago. Who is malala? I say I am malala. And I'm going to publish a book. They thought the bullet would silence her. But they failed. And although the silence came, thousands of voices -- I am malala! I am malala! I speak not for myself, but for those without voice can be heard. We stand with malala. So here I stand, one girl among many. We stand with malala. Now it's time to speak up, to live in peace. We stand with malala! To ensure freedom and equality for women. I am malala. I am malala. Weakness, fear and hopelessness die.
