Malala Yousafzai become the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize - and the 17-year-old has set her sights on becoming Pakistan's prime minister in her future.
Speaking ahead of today's ceremony in Oslo, Norway, the 17-year-old said she hopes to pursue a career in politics after finishing her education in the UK.
Malala was presented with her award at a star-studded ceremony, attended by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, Queen Latifah and the Norwegian royal family.
'I want to serve my country and my dream is that my country becomes a developed country and I see every child get an education,' Malala told BBC HARDtalk.
'If I can serve my country best through politics and through becoming a prime minister then I would definitely choose that.'
Arriving in Norway with friends and young activists from Pakistan, Syria and Nigeria, Malala met thousands of children and walked the streets of Oslo ahead of the ceremony.
'I tell my story, not because it is unique, but because it is not,' Malala said as she received the award in Oslo's ornate city hall on the anniversary of Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel's death.
Addressing being the youngest ever recipient Malala said: 'I am pretty certain that I am also the first recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize who still fights with her younger brothers.
'I want there to be peace everywhere, but my brothers and I are still working on that.'
Malala was jointly awarded the prize with and Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi.
Miss Yousafzai became a household name after her campaigning for girls' right to education led to an assassination attempt by the Taliban two years ago, and has worked tirelessly as a human rights campaigner following her recovery.
Malala currently lives with her father, mother and two brothers in Birmingham, attending a local school.
