Yousufzai spoke out publicly for the first time since the attack in a video recorded Saturday before the surgeries but uploaded Monday.
"Today you can see that I'm alive," Yousufzai says in the video, created by the women's leadership non-profit, Vital Voices. "I can speak, I can see you, I can see everyone."
The 15-year-old also says she's "getting better everyday," thanks to the well wishes and prayers of supporters. She encourages viewers to donate to The Malala Fund, an initiative in support of girls' education around the world.
