A 22 year old fearless girl who survived a gunshot to her head has become a famous face as a human rights campaigner. The journey of Malala Yousafzai was never easy. Born in Pakistan Malala was always sincere about her studies. She considered Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Benazir Bhutto as her role model. Her father’s thoughts and humanitarian work always inspired her to do something big.
In her native “Swat valley” in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, she had always stood up and encouraged girls for education and schooling. In “Swat valley” the Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school.
In October 2012 she encountered a major attack that changed her life. While coming back from school a masked gunman boarded her school bus and ask “Who is Malala,” little did she knew before she was shot on the left side of her head. She was shot in an assassination attempt in retaliation for her activism. 10 days later she woke up in the hospital of Birmingham where she was being treated for her injuries.
Recently the youngest Nobel Prize winner has completed her graduation in philosophy, politics, and Economics at Britain’s prestigious Oxford University. On Friday she shared the moment of joy on tweeter by saying “Hard to express my joy and gratitude right now as I completed my Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at Oxford”
