(KCEN) -- The 15-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot for speaking out on women's rights is now walking and talking after two surgeries.
Pakistani militants tried to kill Malala Yousufzai last October because she demanded an education.
She is currently recovering at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
On Saturday, doctors performed surgery on Yousufzai, inserting a titanium plate into her skull and a cochlear implant in her ear to restore hearing.
Since the attack, Yousufzai has become a global icon in the fight against Islamic extremism.
Taliban terrorists tried to silence her outspoken views that girls should be free to attend school.
This is the first time she's spoken on camera since the shooting.
Yousufzai said, "Today you can see that I'm alive. I can speak. I can see you. I can see everyone. And today I can speak and I'm getting better day by day. It's just because of the prayers of people, because all the people, mainly women, children, all of them have prayed for me."
Yousufzai is nominated for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize by three members of the Norwegian Parliament.
She was also reportedly nominated by members of parliament in France, Spain and Canada.
NBC news has not confirmed that information.
