(Newser) – Malala Yousufzai has released a video expressing her appreciation for prayers directed her way from around the world after she was shot by the Taliban. Following multiple surgeries, "today you can see that I am alive," she says in the clip, via NPR. "I can speak, I can see you, I can see everyone. This is a second life, and I want to serve the people" and help "every girl, every child to be educated." Those goals prompted the creation of the Malala Foundation, she says. The video was recorded before a surgery Saturday, the BBC notes.
