Justin Bieber FaceTimes human rights activist Malala Yousafzai
Everytime you read about Justin Bieber, it's always something outrageously bad he's done. Fights, alcohol, prison and so on.
This time though, the 20-year-old singer is in the news for all the right reasons.
He was on FaceTime on August 6 with Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old humanitarian who runs the Malala Fund.

After his conversation with Malala, he posted a picture of himself and her on his Instagram account with 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.”
Malala, made headlines all over the world in 2012 when she survived after being brutally shot in the head at the age of 15 for speaking out against the Taliban in her home country of Pakistan.
She was targeted for being outspoken about how women do not receive equal opportunities in life, especially in education.
Her work got noticed by BBC, New York Times and even received Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize in 2011 and she has been meeting influential people all around the world to get support for her fund.

After the horrific incident, Malala started the fund to bring awareness to the education of young women.
Justin, who was awarded the Humanitarian Award at the Young Hollywood Awards on July 28, is trying to prove exactly why he fully deserves the title.
If you did not already know it, Bieber holds the record for granting more than 200 wishes to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, mostly by meeting sick children who get a kick out of meeting him.
