Question Description

I need someone to check the grammar of my paragraph and potentially help me word it better. The paragraph is typed below.

On October 9, 2012, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman, leaving her in critical condition. This tragic event kept her from speaking out on the topic of girls’ rights to education for a little over nine months. But on July 12, 2013, Malala begins to speak up again and gives a speech at the United Nations. After she gave her now-famous speech, she continued to overcome the huge obstacle and speak up for herself and other girls, earning her a Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.
