Last week we asked you who you thought was the Person of the Year in 2013. ForeignStudents.com writer Erik created a shortlist of eight names and we asked you to vote. The response was great and there were two clear frontrunners from the very beginning. On the very final day of voting, Angela Merkel was just pipped to the post by our winner... Malala Yousafzai.
Here Erik Redli takes a look at the very worthy winner.

Actually, school should not teach, but show how to learn.
