Nobel laureate, Malala Yousafzai graduates from Oxford University
Nobel laureate 2014 and UN Messenger of Peace, Malala Yousafzai has graduated from Oxford University.
The 22-year-old Human rights campaigner Malala Yousafzai shared her joy upon g completing her degree in a tweet where she wrote: “Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford. I don’t know what’s ahead. For now, it will be Netflix, reading, and sleep. 😴
Malala also tweeted two pictures as she announced the news.
In one, she was celebrating with her family in front of a graduation cake.
The other was taken after a “trashing”, a tradition at the university where students are covered with food and confetti after completing their exams.
Recall that Malala survived shots in the head, neck, and shoulder by Taliban soldiers for saying girls should be allowed to stay in education. This happened while traveling home from school after writing an anonymous diary about life under the extremists.
After recovering from her near-fatal injuries, she and her family relocated to Birmingham.
In 2014, she became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, at the age of 17. Three years later she accepted a place to study at Oxford.
