Nada al-Ahdal was just 11-years old in July of 2013 when she fled her family home in Yemen to avoid a forced marriage with a 26-year-old man. As she was escaping, she made a video explaining how a marriage at this age would have destroyed her prospects of getting an education and ruined her life as it had for so many other children.

The video went viral and received over eight million views in the first months after it was posted.
