(KCEN) -- A brave 14 year old girl in Pakistan, famous for speaking out against militants, is fighting for her life.
Doctors removed a bullet from her neck yesterday after she was shot by the Taliban on Tuesday.
Malala Yousufza was on the school bus when she was shot in the head and neck by Taliban gunmen.
She's a well known blogger who won Pakistan's first Nobel Peace Prize for her reporting on the Taliban's ban on education for women.
In a never seen before interview, she explained why she took such a risk.
Yousufza said, "So I thought I must stand up for my rights, the right of education, the right for peace, so I did it. No, I have rights. I have the right of education. I have the right to play. I have the right to sing. I have the right to talk. I have the right to go to market. I have the right to speak up."
Doctors say there is still a bullet inside her body and list her in critical condition. Police said two other girls were also wounded.
