Dubai: Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, has said she has not done enough to deserve the award.

The 16-year-old was shot in the head by the Pakistani Taliban on October 9 last year for promoting girls` education.

She has gone on to become a global ambassador for the right of all children to go to school, Gulf News reports.

In an interview with Pakistani radio station City89 FM, Malala spoke of her desire to do more to promote education, saying she felt she had not yet earned the Nobel accolade.

She said that there are many people who deserve the Nobel Peace Prize and she still need to work a lot, adding that she has not done that much to win the Nobel Peace Prize. (ANI)
