Malala Yousafzai was shot and on Tuesday was getting treatment for serious wounds, but thousands of miles away it appears that Selena Gomez is looking to raise awareness for the issues. The young woman laying in the hospital is known for her education and women’s rights activism when the Taliban has at times banned girls from attending school to learn.

“Please honor Malala Yousafzai by spreading her message of children's right to an education,” tweeted Selena Gomez from her official Twitter account. The entertainer is a UNICEF spokeswoman and shared a UNICEF page where the fans could read about the young girl.

As Selena Gomez definitely is impacted by the tragedy, it was obvious she wanted to make a difference. Changing the icon on her page to Malala Yousafzai’s face and sharing more about the girl on her Facebook page, thousands of Selena Gomez fans couldn't miss the message.

“Our hearts are with Malala and her family at this time, and our foremost concern is for her full recovery,” reads the UNICEF page honoring the young woman.

Malala Yousafzai is currently in Britain receiving treatment. Hopeful to make a full recovery, the young woman has been outspoken in wanting education in her country and continued to do so, even laying on a gurney recovering.
