Nobel Peace Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai sat down with The Obamas on Friday.
The 16 year old spoke with the First Lady about developing educational opportunities for impoverished children around the world.
"It was a wonderful honor to meet with the Obamas today. I thanked President Obama for the United States' work in supporting education in Pakistan and Afghanistan and for Syrian refugees. I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education, it will make a big impact. There must be greater cooperation between the United States and Pakistan's democratic government starting now with the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Only then will we ensure lasting peace," she said.
Yousafzai also signed a declaration with President Obama celebrating the International Day of the Girl.
