Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai has been given the designation of youngest-ever "Messenger of Peace" by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
She was officially designated at a ceremony April 10 during which she held a conversation with Guterres and youth representatives from around the world on girls' education, he said.
Honouring her for the vital role, Guterres, said: "You have been to the most hard places [.] visited several refugee camps".
Pakistan's Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi congratulated and praised Malala Yousafzai on being designated as United Nations Messenger of Peace with a special focus on girls' education.
But Malala is no stranger to awards as she was also the youngest person at 17, when she won the Nobel peace prize in 2014.
Malala said the most hard time she faced was living "in the situation of terror in Swat Valley from 2007 to 2009" and deciding to speak out.
"Malala, your story is an inspiration to us all", said Justin Trudeau, Canada's prime minister, during the ceremony, where he presented Yousafzai with a certificate of honorary citizenship and a Canadian flag.
She now lives in the city with her family.
Israel shuts Egypt border crossing following terror warning
As if to emphasize the warning, terrorists in the Sinai desert launched at rocket at southern Israel on Monday morning. Adraee also said that Israeli military forces were searching the area following the attack.
"You need to stand up. you need to believe in yourselves".
At just 19 years old, she is the youngest person ever to receive this honor from the United Nations.
"And I realized that if you remain silent, you are still going to be terrorized".
Yousafzai was shot in 2012 by the Taliban for attending classes.
Apart from her prominence as a young activist, Malala who lives in Britain recently received an offer to study politics, philosophy and economics at a United Kingdom university, on condition of achieving three As in her A-levels.
She survived the attack and became an advocate for the millions of girls denied a formal education worldwide. There she began to blog anonymously for the BBC's Urdu language site, campaigning for the right of girls to an education. She called herself a "proud Pakistani" and a "proud Muslim" and said that she was obliged to raise her voice against the misrepresentation and misperception of her country and her faith.
Malala Yousafzai, 19, made history once again on Monday.
"You are a true example to the world of what it means to stand up for humanity and I'm hopeful that you will inspire many more countries, more leaders, to follow in your footsteps", she said in a brief remarks inside the Library of Parliament prior to her address.
