22-year-old Malala shared her two pictures on her twitter handle which show her celebrations with the family on graduating from Oxford’s Lady Margaret Hall College.
She wrote in her tweet that it is hard for her to express her joy and gratitude for completing her Philosophy, Politics, and Economics degree at Oxford. Her pictures show her sitting with her family in front of a cake that says, ‘ happy graduation Malala’.
Sharing her immediate future plans she tweeted, it is Netflix, reading, and sleeping for the time being. It is notable that famed human rights activist, Malala, was shot by the Taliban militants in the head in December 2012 as she was campaigning for female education in the Swat valley in northeastern Pakistan.
She was airlifted from one military hospital to another in Pakistan in a severely wounded condition and for the treatment only, she was later flown to the U.K.
The Taliban even released a statement after the attack mentioning that they would target her again if she survived.
After all this, she was unable to return to Pakistan even after recovery. Hence, she moved ot Britain where she set up the MALALA FUND and supports local education advocacy groups with a focus on Pakistan, Nigeria, Jordan, Syria, and Kenya.
