- Activist Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Peace Prize winner, to join University of Oxford
- Malala was shot in 2012 by Taliban because of her fight for girl child education
-Going to University was her dream, as she aspired to set an example for other girls
Outspoken young activist Malala Yousafzai is set to join the University of Oxford after scoring straight As in High School.
This is like a dream come true for the 20-year-old activist, as she aspires to set an example for the girl child in her mother country Pakistan.
“I am so excited for getting an opportunity to study at Oxford,” says Malala, who plans to pursue a course in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE).
The young activist reportedly scored grade A in math, chemistry, physics, biology, geography, history, English and literature and religious studies.
“'My heart is full of gratitude. We are grateful to Allah. Thank you to all those who support Malala for the grand cause of education,” her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai, says in a tweet.
Malala grabbed global attention in 2012 when she was shot in the head by Pakistan’s Taliban in what was widely seen as an assassination attempt because of her persistent campaigns for the girl child education.
She became the youngest person to ever receive a Nobel Peace Prize winner back in 2014. Her fight for rights of the girl child has continued to earn her lots of accolades across the world.
