Justin Bieber video chats Malala

Thursday August 7, 2014

After finishing his holiday on the world renowned Balearic island of Ibiza, pop sensation Justin Bieber is now back in the US. On Thursday the star began his day by FaceTiming Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai.

Despite normally posting selfies to his Instagram page, and more recently, various snaps of his holiday antics, the Canadian heartthrob added a screenshot of his video chat with 17-year-old Malala, adding the caption "Just got to FaceTime with Malala Yousafzai. She has such an incredible story. I can’t wait to meet her in person and talk about how I can support her and the @malalafund. #love"

Schoolgirl Malala rose to fame in 2009 when she survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban for daring to speak out about the lack of education rights for girls in Pakistan, and has continued to campaign ever since. This year, she spent her 17th birthday with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan to discuss efforts regarding the Bring Back Our Girls campaign.

Justin, 20, is not the only celebrity who has been lucky enough to speak with Malala. Her tireless dedication and admirable work is also supported by the likes of Orlando Bloom, Clive Owen and Justin’s former girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
