Malala Yousafzai is hoping to make an impact when she speaks at a conference in London on Thursday.
The education activist and Nobel laureate will seek to inspire world leaders to commit $1.4 billion this year to give Syrian refugee children access to education, according to Reuters.
"I have met so many Syrian refugee children, they are still in my mind. I can't forget them. The thought that they won't be able to go to school in their whole life is completely shocking and I cannot accept it," Malala told Reuters in a telephone interview.
She will appear at the London conference alongside a 17-year-old Syrian refugee at the event, which is being co-hosted by the United Nations and the British, German, Norweigan and Kuwaiti governments.
