WHEN MALALA YOUSAFZAI was awarded the Nobel Prize last year, she became the youngest person to ever win the award.

The 18-year-old from the northwest of Pakistan was shot in the head by the Taliban and since has gone on to widely advocate education for girls in parts of the world where it isn’t the norm.

Over the weekend she appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, displaying a talent with card tricks.

The teenager carried out a trick that worked with a double reveal. At first she picked out two incorrect cards, making host Colbert place his hands over them.

After making him blow on both his hands, one of the cards was revealed to be the four of hearts, the card that he had initially chosen.
